The fairway follows the headland on the western edge of the harbour. This shows as a darker area on the photograph and is marked ‘FW’. Please observe the 4 knot speed limit once past the Black Rock at the harbour entrance.
Please note that ALL moorings laid in Solva harbour dry out on every tide!
When entering the harbour via the fairway, the orange buoy to starboard (marked ‘RB’ on the photograph) is for rigging only. It has light ground tackle, and is unsuitable for mooring.
Visiting craft may pick up any of the eight visitors moorings situated just beyond the rigging buoy. These are identified as ‘VM’ on the photograph and the yellow buoy on on each mooring is marked with the letter ‘V’. The three-part moorings comprise two head lines to SEAWARD and one SINGLE STERN line joined by a messenger rope, and the bottom is sand. Please note that all other moorings in the harbour are allocated to SBOA members and may not be used by visiting craft, even if vacant.
Visiting craft may also lie against the wall at Trinity Quay (marked ‘TQ’ on the photograph), or the Sand Quay (marked ‘SQ’). The bottom is shingle in both locations. For fin keel yachts at Trinity Quay, a halyard from the masthead may be attached to a strong point on the club house for additional security.
The Association also has a number of other moorings available at the upper end of the harbour suitable for longer stays. Please contact the Harbour Master for further details. For current charges for all visiting craft please Click Quay charges 2019
