ADMIRALTY Sailing Directions for shipping requiring equipment in accordance with SOLAS

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

ADMIRALTY Sailing Directions are also a useful equipment for navigation on board in sports shipping which is not subject to mandatory equipment. Especially in areas where a coverage with district guides is not possible or not possible in an up-to-date form many skippers fall back on the sea handbooks.

Numerous illustrations colour photos and sketches facilitate navigation.

Update of the ADMIRALTY Sailing Directions

The editors provide free weekly updates of the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office marine manuals on the homepage. These are published as part of the Notice to Mariners. You can also order a subscription for a weekly delivery of the paper version of the Notice to Mariners from your chart supplier HanseNautic. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
