Approach & Entrance; Enter Chichester Harbour on the starboard side of the channel until the Hayling Island Sailing Club mast is bearing 240ºM on the port side. From this position you will see an E Cardinal Mark with tide gauge bearing approximately 290ºM and a jetty pontoon on the sailing club shore. Alter course to port onto a heading of 281ºM. Adjust your course to keep the transit in line. Proceed down the transit for approximately three cables, leaving the pile mooring to port. As you pass the last pile mooring you will see steel piles with red can top marks on your port bow. Follow these marks which will lead you into the harbour.
