SWANSEA TO TENBY / SAUNDERSFOOT
35 Nm. H/W Swansea 9.20 8.7m half spring. H/W Tenby 2120
Leave Swansea about one hour before h/w. The counter clockwise tide will carry you towards Mixon Buoy and then pick up the west flowing ebb.
The cut through Helwick sands (A) is the shortest route. A section has been dredged which allows for safe passage in settled weather but if you go
around past W Helwick Cardinal buoy you will pick up a better tide. The tides in Carmathen bay are relatively light.
Be prepared to anchor off at Tenby and enter the harbour h/w -
Alternatively go to Saundersfoot. Again, be prepared to anchor off although it may be possible to pick up a buoy. Enter h/w -
Long warps necessary for both Tenby and Saundersfoot to allow for depth of tide.
