DATE: June 24, 2013
COUNTRY: India
PORT: Paradip
Circular: Crew Sign on/Sign off at SPM at Paradip Port

As the sea condition near SPM site is normally rough during south-west
monsoon seasons i.e. from June to September, it is suggested that Sign on /
Sign off must be avoided during this period except for emergency cases. The
Sign on / Sign off of supernumeraries / families must be completely avoided
during this period.

However, in case of exigencies, the crew change may be allowed at anchorage
area with due permission from the undersigned after completion of discharge
of cargo at SPM.   The entire risks & cost towards delays will be on the
account of the Owners.

For any queries, pls contact GAC Shipping Cochin, India on +91-484-266 8372

The forecast is for strong force gale winds and big swells.

The Port remains open and the Harbour master will conduct risk assessments
with the Marine Pilots for shipping movements as required during the next
