A handy, splash-proof, on-the-water reference guide to writing a clear and logical passage plan for a sea voyage, covering routing, pilotage, points of departure, landfalls, weather, tides, currents, safe havens, lights, communications, watchkeeping, safety, rations, fuel supplies, stowage and briefing. A passage plan is much more than routeing information. It covers every aspect of a voyage with the aim of preparing both ship and crew so that the passage is made in a safe, seamanlike and enjoyable manner.
