Channel Markers

If there are channel markers, stay within the marked channel. In the Broads, markers are usually posts or buoys. Some broads have channels marked across them. Stay clear of all channel markers and don’t tie up to them. Unless signs indicate otherwise, keep to the right of the channel.

  • You should pass red markers on your right
  • You should pass green markers on your left
  • Isolated yellow markers indicate a hazard.
  • A yellow and black marker shows where a river or channel splits in two directions. Pass either side of the marker but don’t cut behind it.
