Re: Dampier Draft
Guidance for Cape panellists
C5 – West Australia/Qingdao
In view of the revision in the main channel sailing draft in Dampier recently announced on 19 February 2015, panellists are instructed to continue to benchmark this route basis normal drafts.
We are endeavouring to ascertain if this restriction is temporary or otherwise and will continue to review the situation and keep you advised.
For any fixtures concluded from Dampier that might include an adjustment for the draft, then this should be taken into account when assessing the route.
Questions and comments should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
