ADMIRALTY Sailing Directions for SOLAS equipment-required shipping

The UK Sailing Directions are part of the bridge equipment required on board merchant ships under SOLAS. Depending on the rules of the flag state the necessary official publications and sea manuals must also be on board in addition to the current nautical charts.

ADMIRALTY Sailing Directions are also a useful piece of equipment for navigation on board in non-equipped recreational shipping. Especially in areas where coverage with cruising guides is not possible or not in up-to-date form many skippers resort to the sea manuals.

Numerous illustrations colour photos and sketches facilitate navigation.

You can also order a subscription for a weekly delivery of the paper version of the Notice to Mariners from your chart suppliers HanseNautic. Feel free to contact us.
