New navigational lights have been installed to help night sailors on the Beaulieu River as part of ongoing investment in services for mooring holders and visitors to Buckler’s Hard Yacht Harbour.

Five sets of buoys have each been fitted with flashing beacons, making it even easier for visitors to the Beaulieu River to navigate at night.

“By ensuring that vessels always keep to the main channel in the deepest, safest part of the river, the lights are helping to improve navigational safety,” explained Wendy Stowe, Beaulieu River harbour master.

Safety first

The markers light the way between Gins at the Solent end of the river and Buckler’s Hard Yacht Harbour. Additional lights have been added to markers that line the channel between Gins and the river mouth.

The Beaulieu River is one of the few privately-owned rivers in the world which has ensured it remains an unspoilt haven in the heart of the New Forest National Park.
