Follow the large waterway past Svinöra, pass the red buoy, sail between the red and green buoys and continue towards the leading line markers on Klemmenten in order to pass Davidstenar on the port side. Turn to port when you have two leading line markers in line to the stern on Sandön. Pass the red buoy, sail between the next buoys (you now have two leading line markers in line to the stern on Klemmenten) and straight ahead you have two leading line markers in line on Pitholmen. When you have passed a total of 3 pairs of buoys you should turn to starboard, you now have two leading line markers in line to the stern on Nötön, and straight ahead there are two beacons that are alit in line. Pass a pair of buoys, and turn to port at the single red buoy. Now proceed on course 214.5o straight into the guest harbour. There are plans to dredge the waterway in 2012.
