There has been a recent change in draft restrictions for the access channel to San Nicolas New Port / Fiscal berths to 8.2m (subject to daily height of the river.) Our correspondent in Argentina advises Members and their Masters to discuss draft restrictions with their agents when calling San Nicolas port.
