Good Morning All,

A friendly reminder

Please advise all vessels that are currently at anchorage or due to arrive in Geraldton over the next few days of the current severe weather conditions forecast from today through until later this week.

We ask that you advise Masters that they should maintain a close watch on their position and heave anchor and proceed to sea if concerned regarding the ability of their vessel to maintain station at anchor. Should vessels start to drag anchor they have permission to heave up anchor and sail to safe waters or steam up and down the coast until bad weather passes. 

NOTE: VHF coverage is limited during the hours of 1700-0700 and should they need to move please do so and log their times and advise the agent via email.
