Watch out for a nuclear submarine under the Solent on 23 October

Boaters may get a surprise on Saturday 23 October as a nuclear submarine will be lurking beneath the Solent.

The sub will travel from the Nab Tower to Portsmouth Harbour as part of a five day visit to the port.

A notice to mariners has been issued by the Queens’s Harbour Master warning vessels in the area of the sub’s movements and its classification as a vessel constrained by draught.

The submarine will be escorted by tugs, which will be displaying the correct signals for a vessel constrained by draught and police boats who will ensure boaters adhere to the 100 metre exclusion zone.
