Admiralty Sailing Directions (Pilots) provide essential information to support port entry and coastal navigation for all classes of ships at sea. Split across 75 volumes, coverage includes the world’s main commercial shipping routes and ports. Each volume of Sailing Directions offers:
– Information on navigational hazards, buoyage, pilotage, regulations, general notes on countries, port facilities, seasonal currents, ice and climatic conditions. This information, when used alongside official Admiralty charts, can help to increase situational awareness on the bridge.
– High quality diagrams and photography to help bridge-crews understand critical information during the passage planning stage.
