Port of Tauranga Update, 4:15 pm, 10 January
The Harbourmaster has issued a recommended route for vessels approaching and leaving the Port of Tauranga (see following page):
This route is a line drawn between the Tauranga Pilot Station (37 34.9 S 176 12.5 E) and a position five nautical miles due east of Mayor Island light (37 18.6 S 176 21.9 E). An aerial observation of this route was made earlier this afternoon and currently the floating containers and debris field are generally moving in a south-easterly direction away from Astrolabe Reef and the port.
It is recommended that vessels arriving or departing the Port of Tauranga follow this route at a safe speed, keep a proper lookout and exercise caution.
Normal shipping movements are continuing. We will advise you directly if the situation changes.
