location, size and
hydro-meteorological conditions cannot be a port of refuge for vessels.
The most dangerous phenomenon is a swell
horizontal wavering of seawater) resulting from southern and southwestern winds
locally named - "tyagun".
When the “Tyagun” is moderate or heavy, vessels’ entrance into the harbour
and their staying alongside and at anchorage within the inner port waters are considered dangerous and even
impossible. “Tyagun” accompanied with
southwestern gale is extremely dangerous. While strong “tyagun” the height
of waves goes up to 70 decimeters.
While gale of southern directions rough seas may also be dangerous for vessels in the harbour, especially for those alongside piers Nos 9 and 9a
The port does not guarantee
vessels their safe
berthing and staying alongside while influence of the gale of southern
directions and the “tyagun”, as well as does not bear responsibility for
On receiving forecast about the moderate and heavy
“tyagun” or on its factual development Shipmasters shall immediately put
main engine on stand-by and leave for the open sea, as it is DANGEROUS to stay in the port
While leaving the sea gates Masters of large-capacity
vessels shall remember and take into account that gales SE, S, SW, W cause
considerable cross sea at the gates, what is dangerous while pitching of vessels
with maximum draft, as vessel’s keel may contact the bottom. Considerable
drifting may occur under the influence of the wind and the current.
To avoid average cases vessels shall confine themselves
close to the line of the leading marks where the waters are the deepest.
