Harbour Office - French Vessels - 11.05.20

French registered vessels:

As of the 11th of May French registered vessels can travel up to 55 miles from their registered port.

As Alderney is within 8 miles of the French coast and 14 miles from the nearest main French port, French vessels may be seen in the waters around Alderney.

A communication has been sent to the nearest French ports reminding them that Alderney & Guernsey are currently not receiving international vessels.

The Harbour Office will continue to manage this and contact any vessel approaching Alderney waters, to obtain the vessels intentions and advise not to land on Alderney.
