Fleet Reach and Home Reach

Entering Fleet Mill Reach

Passing the wreck (Kingswear Castle Paddle Steamer) (Fig 21), when parallel with the end of the wall at Fleet Mill Quay, head towards Sharpham North Quay (Fig 22) and then stay on the outside of the next bend.

On the outside of the bend pass close to the "40' off" mark, an unlit red pole with a red can topmark.  Leave it to port.

  • 40’Off Mark

    Keep close to left bank once past the “40’ off” mark and make into the centre of the river and then pass close to Berry Rock outcrop (Fig 23) on the starboard side of the channel before negotiating the next left hand bend just right of centre of the channel.  It is wide enough for two boats to pass under normal circumstances.
