Description: Passage planning is a process that requires skill and meticulous research. It is not something that should be taken lightly as it carries responsibility for the safety of the ship. The consequences of omitting information and/or failing to safely plan the passage can be serious.
The navigation officer preparing the passage plan (navigator) must be diligent and seek to produce a comprehensive and detailed 'berth to berth' plan based on a full appraisal, taking into account all possibilities and eventualities, while reducing navigational risk.
An effective passage plan, whether it is completed using paper charts or ECDIS, must:
• Establish appropriate safety settings for each stage of the voyage, taking into account the requirements of the SMS
• clearly define a safe navigational route from berth to berth
• be comprehensive and contain an appropriate level of detail
• reduce navigational risks and include contingency options
• satisfy environmental protection requirements
• be checked visually and electronically
• be reviewed and approved by the Master
• be easy to follow, allowing safe and efficient execution and monitoring of the plan.
