Wave Hub Aids to Navigation Position and Status

The Wave Hub Boundary SW Special Mark was moved to a new approved assigned position on 20 July 2014.

All marks are on station and lit and the AIS on the North Cardinal operational. However, the six special marks are not currently synchronised – works are in progress to resolve this issue.
