Two buoys have been located to the west and north of Selle Roque (in positions 49 28.046N 002 26.446W and 49 27.890N 002 26.548W) on the South-eastern Corner of Herm Island as part of a number of measures to help protect our remaining seabird population.

The buoys, yellow in colour, are annotated “Speed Limit - 6 Knots” as a reminder to mariners to observe the Coastal Restricted Zone speed limit as laid down in:

The Boats and Vessels (Registration, Speed Limits and Abatement of Noise) Ordinance 1970 – Part 2 – Section 8
