Web Alert: Challenges of calling at Chittagong port, Bangladesh
09 November 2017
The club is aware that members calling at Chittagong port in Bangladesh continue to face a number of challenges when lying at the anchorage areas and also when coming into berth at the port. This includes the strong tidal variation that represents a real challenge to even the more experienced navigators when entering and leaving Chittagong. The club has recently seen an increase of collision incidents at Chittagong and members would be advised to take extra precautions when calling at this port. The attached guidance note sets out some practical guidance in order to minimise potential issues.
The club will continue to monitor developments and keep members informed. In case of any queries, members are invited to contact their usual claims contact for claims and loss prevention guidance.
