Examples of unusual or suspicious behaviour may be:

  • Unusual boat movements late at night or early in the morning
  • People being landed at unusual locations
  • People not knowing about boat handling
  • People dressed inadequately for sailing
  • Boats moving around at night time with no navigational lighting
  • RIBS being loaded / unloaded at unusual times or places
  • Packages being transferred out at sea from larger boats
  • Packages being transferred to waiting cars
  • Strangers acting suspiciously within the marina
  • Strangers wanting to hire boats
  • Boats with extra fuel tanks
  • Boats overloaded with passengers

If you notice anything unusual or suspicious:

  • Never involve yourself
  • Never touch any suspicious packages
  • Make a note of any registration numbers, markings or descriptions.

Remember: if you have any information or concerns regarding any of the above, or about your own port or any port you may visit, then please contact police as soon as possible.
