Passage planning - will be updated soon
The Flemish pilots present typical passage plans for berths in the ports of Antwerpen, Gent and Zeebrugge so that Masters are able to obtain a clear picture of the usual route to and from the nominated berth.
It must be clearly understood that these passages are typical or ideal. Circumstances will occur where deviation from these typical plans will occur. Where deviation from the plan is required, the pilot will discuss the anticipated modification to the plan and the consequences of the required changes with the Master.
This typical passage plans are to be used for guidance only, in conjunction with nautical charts and publications. The final passage plan may vary after considering all operational factors, and will be discussed and verified during the Master-Pilot exchange.
