I think you can never be too cautious - especially at night.

With a rough sea or an especially low tide you could hit something easily enough, and rocks and boulders are not something you ever want to hit in a keelboat. From the excerpt you've shown it would seem that the light on G'21' is there for a reason - to tell people not to cut the corner.
