Shoreham

Tides and tools
Overview





Shoreham is a seaside town and busy commercial port on the southeast coast of England located about five miles west of Brighton. Set on the estuary of the River Adur it offers the potential of a berth in a small marina, or a local club, in a non-tidal basin. The approach is through locks, or for those that can take to the mud, there is an opportunity to dry out in the mouth of the river.

Locked into the harbour's inner basin Shoreham offers complete protection from all conditions. The harbour’s well-marked channel and wide entrance provide safe access at all stages of tides, night and day, in all reasonable conditions. The only exception is during strong onshore conditions that would make the shallow entrance a hazard for newcomers and dangerous for all in a gale on the ebb.
