The entrance from the Bristol Channel between the breakwaters, has a west going flow, but is straightforward and accessible at all states of the tide. Keep well clear of any commercial traffic, anchoring away from the main shipping channel and the anchor chains and mooring at the SW and W of the pilot boats. There is generally someone at the Clubhouse who can help and supply information, the Shoremaster can often arrange for a temporary mooring.
