Harbour Patrol and Incident Reporting

   

 

The Harbour Master and his assistants carry out a regular patrol of the harbour and estuary at all times of the year particularly in the busy summer months.

The purpose of the patrol is:
* to enable the safe enjoyment and use of the harbour and estuary by giving mariners practical assistance afloat, guidance on safety and good seamanship and advice on complying with the byelaws.
* to provide guidance to visiting yachtsmen to ensure that they can be safely accommodated whilst visiting Teignmouth.
* to take action if the basic principles of safety and good seamanship are ignored or if there is a breach of the byelaws. e.g: exceeding the speed limit or creating an undue amount of wash.

 

Reporting of Incidents

 

The Harbour Master and his assistants are unable to cover the harbour and estuary all the time and in order to maintain a safe environment it is important that incidents are reported so the necessary action can be taken.
This is essential information, which helps them manage the harbour and estuary more effectively to the benefit of all.

To report an incident telephone or call and see the Harbour Master.

For bylaws see information directory page


For major incidents a short report form needs to be completed as well and sent or given to the Harbour Master.
