Approach is pretty straight forward. Depths drop dramatically norther than pontoon.
Berthing with strong easterly winds may be challenging at the outer berths of the pontoon.

Berthing

Marinas & Yacht Clubs

There is no marina but there are showers and toilets on the quay. The code is C4732X - written on pontoon pillars. The payment is with self service envelope. As for summer 2017 the price was 20 pounds per night for the yacht below 10m and 25 pounds between 10 and 15 meters. There is free Wi-Fi at the pontoons, but it's working good only near the entrance.
