So the map is here
Marked by arrow is distant light in the end of breakwater (see picture of Peter)
Now we can try to identify these 3 beacons.

Nice Mitko, at the bow of the Straat Freetown is seen a red buoy, shown left of stoney point on your map, if the situation is unchanged. The tug could be near Green no 3.
