The Cowes Breakwater Project construction programme is wholly contained within an Exclusion Zone marked by large, lit navigation buoys; any vessel not involved in the works shall remain outside of the Exclusion Zone at all times due to the presence of works equipment, obstructions and a growing gravel bank.
The reminder comes after a man ran aground on the shingle bank within the exclusion zone on Sunday.
Cowes Local Notice to Mariners, which changes regularly, can be viewed for full details at http://www.cowesharbourcommission.co.uk/local_notices_to_mariners.
