SHOREHAM HARBOUR RADIO
Mariners are reminded that Shoreham Port operates at a Local Port Services level, as defined in MGN 401(M&F).
The provision of a Local Port Service is designed to improve port safety and co-ordinate port services within the harbour by the provision of port information to vessels, berths or terminal operators.
Shoreham Harbour Radio operators will provide port related information to the bridge team on request, or when deemed necessary but will not participate in the onboard decision making process. As in any navigation situation, Shipmasters and mariners are expected to exercise good seamanship and comply with The Prevention of Collisions at Sea Regulations (1972) as amended. The authority of the Master is never compromised.
