Description

Karang Galang (Pan Reef), lying in the N entrance of Selat Riau about 3 miles NE of Sabang, is marked by a light; it is visible at LW, when it appears as a ridge of black stones. The reef is 0.6 mile long NE-SW, 0.2 mile wide, and steep-to in most places, with depths of 9.1 to 12.8m close-to.

A shoal, with a least depth of 7.4m, lies about 0.2 mile E of the light on Karang Galang; two 10m depths lie 0.3 mile ESE and 183m S, respectively, of the same light.

A wreck lies on the NW side of Karang Galang; two other wrecks lie 2.5 and 6.5 miles WNW, respectively, of the light on Karang Galang.

An 8.2m shoal lies about 0.7 mile SW of the beacon on the SW side of Karang Galang. A rocky patch of small extent, with a depth of 7.3m, lies 2 miles SSW of the light on Karang Galang.

Mariners will find no difficulty in proceeding by either channel aided by the chart.
