Baselines and bay closing lines
The Territorial Sea (Baselines) Order 2014 establishes the baselines from which the breadth of the territorial sea adjacent to the United Kingdom, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man is measured in accordance with the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea.
The baseline is generally the low-water line around the coast, including the coast of all islands.
