In the fall 2017 the marking of the fairway at the mouth of Wisła Śmiała was thoroughly changed. This is the entrance to the marinas in Górki Zachodnie in Gdańsk, with altogether 600 resident boats, about 5 Nm east of the main entrance to the Gdańsk Harbour.
Red and green buoys have new positions now, there are more of them, they are all set in pairs, all of them are lit, and they are bigger than the previously used “sticks”. The Hydrographic Office of the Polish Navy provide a chartlet to correct the corresponding chart in the 2017/2018 edition of the 3022 chart set. See also the plan from my recently published guide book Polskie Wybrzeże Bałtyku .
Note that earlier in 2017 the cardinal buoy GW situated 1 Nm North of Górki Zachodnie was replaced with a red-white buoy of safe water. The new buoy is set to a slightly changed position (displacement 170 m to the East).
