 St Petersburg - Profile

Location

This famous city lies at the far eastern end of The Gulf of Finland, about 150nm from both Helsinki and Tallin.

Position 59° 59.67'N, 29° 40.43'E ( Kronstadt Passage)

Clearance

The 36 mile long shipping channel is through the Kronstadt Passage and Morskoy Canal.

St Petersburg Radio can be contacted on VHF Channel 16 and 71, or on 2182 kHz.  Port Control on VHF Channels 16, 09, 67 or 20.

According to regulations, when a vessel reaches buoy 19 in the approach channel, it should ask to be met by a pilot to be accompanied to the Customs dock. At the moment, yachts clear at Fort Konstantin, Kronshtad (Kotin Island), where there is a Customs office. After formalities are completed, yachts are directed to one of the yacht clubs.

Changes in the rules now permit yachts to clear in at Fort Konstantine at Kronstadt instead of the cruise terminal.
