    There’s a traffic light system both in and out, far too many ferries coming and going to slide in behind one. Loiter on red close to the breakwater and hurry up on green. Your might be contacted on VHF by port control and told to ‘enter queekly’. Yes, he did say that.
    One foot in the grave? A documentary.

    No I called them as I approached the CA2 buoy to let them know I was intending to come in. They asked me to call when closer so I called them again as I got to the CA6 buoy and they let me in.

    On the way out myself along with the few others who left at the same time were told to wait at the lights opposite port control due to ferry movements. Eventually we were given permission to leave. All rather civilised really.

    I was in Calais two weeks ago and the moorings before the bridge were not a problem and large enough to be able to stretch down to thread a line through the mooring loop. Bridge opened at times exactly as advertised as the process is automated.

    Note that the visitor pontoon layout in the marina has now changed. The along side berth on the starboard side as you enter are still there, but three new visiting pontoons are now available just beyond the along side berths.

    My Navionics chart plotter and the marina website still shows the old arrangements.

    Its certainly improved from when we first visited when berthing on the southern wall (to port when you go in) and providing your own ladder to get up was the quite common as the finger pontoons beyond the visitors one didn't exist.
