Wick Harbour

One of the purposes of this website is to keep the local community and the wider world informed and to let you see and understand the changes being made to regenerate the harbour and its facilities.

We will add regular news items here to keep everyone up to date with progress and the future aims of Wick Harbour Authority.

In June 2012 Wick Harbour will be hosting the Wick Diamond Jubilee Harbour Fest and RNLI Lifeboat Day – see attached flyer for information – an event not to be missed by any sailor.

Wick Annual 2011 Report on Light Outages.

November 2011 -  During his recent visit to Wick Harbour we took the opportunity to update Alex Neil, Scottish Cabinet Secretary for Infrastructure and Capital Investment, on our future plans for improvements to support Marine Renewables and general trade.

After a very useful discussion he expressed his backing for our proposals and agreed there is great potential for Wick to play its part in these exciting opportunities.

16th and 17th June 2011 -  The floating home to several millionaires, the liner ‘The World’ stopped off in Wick Bay to allow residents ashore for sightseeing, shopping, and sampling the local hospitality. 

Its presence attracted lots of visitors and it certainly presented an impressive sight, with many local boats venturing out to ‘sail around the world’!

The World

This is the first cruise liner to call at Wick and we are very hopeful that once word gets around how much everyone enjoyed the vist, we will see many more.

29th May 2011 – A 170 tonne Towhead and two smaller ones for Subsea7 were lifted ashore on the North River Pier, and subsequently transported to Wester Site for incorporation into another offshore pipeline bundle.

This is the latest in a 30 year history of towhead imports, and although heavier ones have been skidded ashore from barges on this site, this is the heaviest lift to date carried out on the recently reconstructed pier, which is one of the highest load rated anywhere in the north.
