KHM Clyde / Safety and regulations / regulations

Speed limits

All water users must comply with the Regulations contained in the Clyde Dockyard Port of Gareloch and Loch Long Order 2011 and the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea (Rules of Road). Many incidents and near misses are a result of excessive speed or failing to keep a good lookout.

Within the limits of the Rhu Narrows Restricted Channel; the Faslane Restricted Area; the Coulport Restricted Area and the Coulport Fishing Exclusion Zone, the speed of any vessel shall not exceed seven knots through the water unless a speed in excess of seven knots is essential for the safety of navigation.

Elsewhere within the dockyard port, no vessel shall exceed 12 knots through the water.
