Fairway cards

Fairway cards contain information on fairways and ports and are intended for seafarers. They form a complement to the nautical charts and publications.

The fairway cards cover the channels to all ports which are kept open in winter, i.e. most of the major shipping lanes.

A fairway card contains facts about the fairway dimensions, navigability and navigational conditions, traffic recommendations and restrictions and traffic services provided. Drawings of the fairway and the harbour are appended. The drawings are not intended for navigational use. They outline the channel alignment and buoyage, the fairway area, safe clearance depths, berths and other places which the text refers to.
