Lowestoft Inner Harbour – Wreck “Aisha”

Mariners and Port Users are advised of a change in the condition of sunken vessel ‘Welsh Conquest (Ex Aisha)’, in position 52° 28.60’N, 001° 43.225’E, (alongside

Harbour Road Jetty).

The vessel appears to have moved so that the stern of the vessel now encroaches into the Northern edge of the main navigational channel. The vessel’s upper housing has also started to break apart, and the yellow flash light is no longer on station.

A more thorough assessment of the wreck is scheduled to determine actions and marking requirements.

All vessels are requested to afford the wreck as much room as possible, and pass at slow speed. Mariners are also requested to be alert to the potential for floating debris in the vicinity of the wreck. Please report any such debris to Port Control, VHF Ch14.

Further information will be promulgated once available.

Please contact Lowestoft Port Control, VHF Ch14, or Tel. 01502 572286, if further information is required.
