Follow the water break to the south. The first pontoon (now broken but secured) runs perpendicular to the east, there will be a few super yachts moored stern to. Look for the yellow buoy after 100m, marking the entrance, if you haven't been met already, then go north into the marina


Stern to and alongside.

Marina staff will NOT ALLOW bows-to. They pushed us into other boats because they didn't want us to go bows-in. Not a recommended place!

You will be met by a welcome craft and shown to your berth, and assisted if necessary.

You will need a rope ready tied to bow cleat. They attach this to their short laid lines. Also need their help to leave because of this. Not good!
