COVID-19 Restrictions. Movements of Vessels in the Harbours
In accordance with Section 13 of the Harbours Ordinance, 1988, Guernsey VTS has the delegated power of the Harbourmaster to control all vessel movements within St Peter Port and St Sampson Harbours and approaches. This includes movements in the Albert, Victoria, Queen Elizabeth and St Sampson Marinas.
Under the current restrictions put in place by Guernsey’s Director of Public Health the majority of waterborne activity is considered non-essential and is therefore strongly discouraged. However, within the Harbour Limits Guernsey VTS can prohibit the movement of any craft or vessel.
