During so many years of carrying out vetting to the recognized OCIMF guidelines, the questions covering the passage planning, acceptable formats and requirements as well as compliance with those requirements prompted the organization to develop a set of guidelines with the ultimate intention to get answers.

This compact but so informative and useful booklet was prepared by Captain David Salmon having a great practical experience in the field of marine navigation. Every effort was made by the author to keep the contents of the publication to simplified, understandable, and practical actions to ensure that the masters of the vessels and navigators have been given an opportunity to get all required knowledge.

All essential principles of passage planning have been covered and explained. The parallel indexing has been addressed within a separate chapter. Numerous examples for the coastal approach have been included together with the chartlet. The ocean voyages have been paid particular attention. Two closing chapters of the booklet provide supplementary information, such as the bridge checklists and format sample, that will be of practical use on the bridge of any vessel.
