Across the Middle - P187 - extra note - In June 2021, there were serious strandings of several yachts attempting to pass through the SW Sunk Swatchway. It seems they were following charts displayed on chartplotters. Data on these is evidently seriously out of date and led them astray, grounding them on the Knoll on the S side of the swatchway and requiring RNLI attendance. If you want to use this route, PLEASE take our advice and refer to Roger Gaspar’s information on his website, as recommended at the foot of this page.
