    Re: Avoiding collisions - In this connection, there is a
    very relevant article in The Journal of Navigation, Volume
    56, Number 2, May 2003. pp 195-210. "The Hazards of
    Navigating the Dover Strait (Pas-de-Calais) Traffic
    Separation Scheme" by Commodore David Squire of the Sea
    Safety Group. The article also is available for download for
    a fee from The Cambridge Publications web site at:
    http://titles.cambridge.org/journals/journal_toc.asp?mnemonic=NAV&vol=56&issue=2
    The article gives a through discussion of the problems and
    possible solutions that will be of interest to those who
    traverse this area.
    
    Smooth sailing. Peter Ifland
