New Kattegat traffic seperation schemes

From July 1st new traffic seperation shemes and relocated commercial shipping ways are in force in the Kattegat and off Skagen.

These developments are important for the small craft and leisure marine boaters as well, as TSS shall not be crossed other than in 90° angle to traffic direction, the respective inshore traffic zones are to be used and it is good seamannship to sail out of the commercial shipping lanes.
