LARGE VESSELS
Have little room to stop, turn or alter course within the channel, their movements will be restricted because of their size and draft.They will not be able to deviate from the channel and can take up to 2 nautical miles to stop.

Simple steps to stay safe near large vessels:
• Always keep a lookout for large vessels
• Listen to VHF channel 19 for shipping movements
• Act early
• Stay clear of the channels when ships are entering or departing the ports
• Be aware of wakes from large vessels
