PWC (Personal Watercraft) Users

Jet skis are welcome in Littlehampton Harbour.  The Littlehampton Harbour Board acknowledges that the majority of PWC users conduct themselves in a responsible manner with due regard to the principles of good seamanship.  It is accepted that suitably experienced and trained PWC users pose a minimal risk to themselves and other water users.  However, it is also acknowledged that some degree of management is required particularly in response to a minority of negligent and potentially dangerous users.  Because of this and in response to issues raised by stakeholders, the LHB requires all PWCs launching in the harbour to pay of full annual Harbour Dues.


To manage PWCs in the harbour effectively the LHB requires users to:

  1. Purchase Annual Harbour Dues;
  2. Receive a Safety Briefing from the Harbour Manager or Deputy;
  3. Carry third party insurance;
  4. Obey all Harbour Byelaws, Directions & Collision Regulations, ensuring they navigate and manoeuvre in a safe and courteous manner;
  5. On request, to provide evidence of RYA training course or logged experience;
  6. On request, provide details of the craft to the Harbour Office (make , model, colour or photograph, data Tag  number etc.).

By purchasing Harbour Dues you are agreeing to these conditions.
