Dear Member,

Please note the LPA Notice outlining revised departure windows for long and wide-beam vessels which in some cases have been expanded by up to 45 minutes.  These changes were prompted by the Standing Committee on Marine Navigation, which had appointed a working group to examine the transit windows for the Post-Panamax vessels. The experience gained and the use of the Rate of Turn (ROT) on the pilot’s PPUs allow for these amendments.

Please advise any questions.
