LYC/TSC Moorings at New Brighton

The moorings an New Brighton were laid in March 2017. The Coordinates are:-

53º 26.076' N.
03º 1.577' W.

There are 2 moorings, yellow buoys with a steel "Top Ring" for attaching. They are about 100m South & inshore of TOWER Cardinal buoy, on the 3.5 metre contour.

Notes on using the buoys

  • Tower Cardinal is an easterly cardinal
  • There is a wreck just south of Tower Cardinal, so choose your approach to the buoys with care
  • The weight limit on each of the mooring buoys is a 5 tonne.
  • Do not snag a rope around the base of the buoy, use the ring provided
  • Do call channel 12 and inform Mersey VTS that you are there, and ask them to advise large vessels of your position, so that they keep their wake to a minimum
  • We hope to put a rope strop onto the buoys in the near future, for easier pick up
  • As a courtesy we would like you to tell us if you have used the buoys
