Todd Navigation, the only ADMIRALTY Chart Agent in Ireland, will be exhibiting for the first time at Irish Skipper Expo.
Irish registered fishing vessels must navigate with official government charts and relevant publications for their areas of operation. Publications include Sailing Directions, List of Radio Signals, List of Lights, Nautical Almanac and Tide Tables. All of these must be approved by the Marine Survey Office.
On Stand 91, Todd Navigation will provide information on switching from paper charts and publications to electronic charts (ENCs) using the type approved SEALL ECDIS. With Global systems for mobile communication (GSM) and satellite broadband at sea becoming more affordable, updating of ENCs is extremely easy. Navigating with official government charts makes voyages safer.
Information will be provided for ADMIRALTY Digital Publications (ADP) and e-Nautical Publications (AENP). ADP includes Totaltide tidal prediction software, digital list of lights, and list of radio signals. AENP includes The Nautical Almanac, Sailing Directions, and other miscellaneous publications. Both softwares are easy to install, and more importantly, very easy to update, either online, or by weekly update DVD.
Switching to ADMIRALTY ENCs and digital publications ensures your vessel meets the legal requirements of the Marine Survey Office, assisting safe navigation.
