Crossing the North Sea

Workshop Leader: Ian Jewry

Crossing the Southern North Sea – avoiding the obstacles

In this workshop we will look at the various crossing routes across the North Sea and look at the issues around those crossings – wind farms, gas rigs, TSS schemes, fair weather and poor weather ports, timings and so on. The issues covered will include:

  • Main crossing routes:
    • Lowestoft to Ramsgate
    • Den Helder to Dunkirk.
  • How to avoid wind farms and gas rigs
  • Negotiating TSS and
  • Optimising tides.
