The Port Control Office is situated on the 8th. floor of the tower with the radar antenna, by the dock gates. (NOTE: No lift after 3rd floor!). You must go here for departure clearance.

After clearance, a yacht can move to the yacht club.

Warning: While the harbor provides good shelter it can be uncomfortable due the wakes of the large commercial vessels.

Port of Entry

The Yacht Club is immediately to starboard after passing the lighthouse at the entrance to the commercial harbor. Cruisers report that the moorings are in a poor state and generally for smaller yachts (no more than 12m). It may be advisable to drop your own anchor and back to the quay, but stand well off as wash from passing commercial traffic and swell can cause problems.

The club provides water, electricity, toilets and showers. Charges are based on sq.m (LOA x beam) and on a "day" starting at midnight. So a 1 night stay will be charged as 2 days. Ask about marine supplies and repairs.

Note: They count days from mdinight to midnight, this usually menas that spending 1 night you will be charged for 2.
