In settled weather, entry to Salcombe is straightforward. However, dangerous breakers can occur on the bar (least depth 1m) in strong onshore winds or swell, particularly when the tide is on the ebb, making entry impossible. If you are unsure, call the Harbourmaster on channel 14 for guidance. Off Starehole Bay, the red and white leading marks on Sandhill Point (DIR.FL.WRG.2S27M8M) and the Poundstone will take you in on 000⁰ over the bar and past Bass Rock (Fl.r.5s). Further channel buoys guide you past Wolf Rock (Fl.g.5s) and between Blackstone Rock to starboard and Poundstone to port, where you turn onto the 042.5⁰ inner lead. Visitors’ moorings off the town can be boisterous in a southerly when better shelter can be found on moorings further up in The Bag.
