A north-westerly swell is forecast for St Helena from Sunday, 25 February, through to Tuesday, 6 March 2018. This might result in a large sea swell and breakers in James Bay and Rupert’s Bay.
The public is advised to use caution when accessing the Seafront area. To avoid damage to vehicles, drivers are also asked to take care when parking near the safety rails.
Due care and attention should be taken when swimming in Rupert’s and James Bay during this time.
Port Control will be monitoring sea conditions and may restrict access to the Seafront, Wharf, and Rupert’s Jetty areas if necessary.
