Witherby: Passage Planning Guide
Great Barrier Reef and Torres Strait
(PPG – GBRTS 2019 Edition)
This publication has been revised to incorporate the latest guidance and practical advice for ships transiting the Great Barrier Reef and Torres Strait. Published in conjunction with Australian Reef Pilots and Maritime Industry Australia Ltd, this is a reliable resource for any crew navigating the region.
This publication is designed to be used as part of the ship's pre-entry procedures and as a tool for refreshing the bridge team each time the ship is planning a passage through the GBRTS. Pull-out chartlets allow the book to be used in real time, giving the navigator an overview that is often lost on ships where the primary navigation system is ECDIS. Key updates to the previous PPG – GBRTS include a new section on safely navigating traffic hotspots, updated case studies and guidance and waypoints from the AMSA Queensland Coastal Passage Plan (QCPP).
