Hello, I have just come back on the forum after several years absence, it looks quieter than before. The reason is that I am seriously considering retiring to Lamma this year. One of the considerations is a mooring for my boat, I have been searching online and looking at Googlemaps but cannot get any information other than (from Wikipedia) that the typhoon shelter at Yung Shue Wan is decommissioned. Can anybody offer any advice?

Ask the Lamma Dragons for advice: [url]https://www.facebook.com/groups/5868036622/[/url].

Basically, you'll need inofficial permission from the fishermen mooring their boats in the Harbour and typhoon shelter.

Since my last post enquiring about moorings at Lamma harbour I have made various enquiries and here is what I have learned so far. The Hong Kong marine authority are very helpful and efficient and within a couple of emails I have been told:

Quote:
Please note the typhoon shelters and sheltered anchorages are open to all classes of local vessels on a first-come-first-served basis
.

AND

Quote:
Pursuant to the existing marine regulations, except where it is prohibited for the purpose of anchoring, the coxswain and owners of local vessels are allowed to anchor their vessel within a typhoon shelter or at any safe and suitable area in the Hong Kong waters according to the vessel’s operation need and the availability of water space.


So provided that there is adequate space, it is clear that anybody with a locally registered vessel can anchor at or near the harbour, and there is no question of any other user having prior authority. I am very much looking forward to returning once travel restrictions are lifted and the boat is ready to be moved, I hope towards the end the year.

As to the status of the area, Yung Shue Wan is listed on the Wikipedia site as a decommissioned typhoon shelter. Does anyone have any recollection of this decommissioning, and why it took place?

Ask the Lamma Dragons public group, some are Lamma veterans and good friends with local fishermen:
