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.
