Sailing Holidays in Porto Falconera

Porto Falconera consists of the seaward reaches of Fiume Lemene and Canale Nicessolo, which form an inlet. The entrance is obstructed by sandbanks limiting access, by an unmarked channel, only to craft of about 0. 5 m draught. Local knowledge is required. Within the sandbanks depths increase rapidly to about 6 m. The bed of Fiume Lemene is uneven and in places has depths of 13 to 15 m. The river, which is not subject to flooding, communicates by inland waterways with Venezia, Portogruaro and other places, through Laguna di Caorle. Entry is not advised in rough seas which break across the entrance. Anchorage sheltered from all winds and with good holding may be obtained within the harbour.
