Applicable to both harbours: May be entered day and night, allowances being made for wind, current and visibility. Hammerodde, Christiansoe and Svaneke lighthouses will guide boats in during approach. In SW-ly winds, a hard current can set toward Sandhammaren on the SE point of Scania (southern Sweden). In strong NW-wind, a strong current sets to the southward at Hammeren. Gudhjem Harbour (S): The Harbour's light beacons line up to guide boats in a 202 degrees and are turned off whenever the harbour is unnavigable. In daylight this is shown by a red ball on the flagpole on the north breakwater. Noerresand Harbour(N): Nighttime approaches require that the harbour's leading light is turned on. Form April 1st to August 1st the beacon light is lit only on proor agreement with the harbour master. In N-ly and NE-ly winds of more than 10 metres per second, the gate in the south harbour will be closed. The light will be turned off and the red ball will be hoisted.
