This publication has been corrected to 31 May 2014, includ-ing Notice to Mariners No. 22 of 2014. Explanatory Remarks Sailing Directions are published by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) under the authority of Departmentof Defense Directive 5105.40, dated 12 December 1988, andpursuant to the authority contained in U. S. Code Title 10,Sections 2791 and 2792 and Title 44, Section 1336. SailingDirections, covering the harbors, coasts, and waters of theworld, provide information that cannot be shown graphicallyon nautical charts and is not readily available elsewhere.Sailing Directions (Planning Guide) are intended to assistmariners in planning ocean passages and to eliminate duplica-tion by consolidating useful information about all the countriesadjacent to a particular ocean basin in one volume. Planning Guide publications are compiled and structured inthe alphabetical order of countries contained within the regioncovered by each publication. Bearings.— Bearings are true, and are expressed in degreesfrom 000° (north) to 360°, measured clockwise. Generalbearings are expressed by the initial letters of the points of thecompass (e.g. N, NNE, NE, etc.). Adjective and adverb end-ings have been discarded. Wherever precise bearings are in-tended, degrees are used. Charts.— Reference to charts made throughout this publi-cation refer to both the paper chart and the Digital NauticalChart (DNC). Corrective Information.— Users should refer corrections,additions, and comments to NGA’s Maritime Operations Desk,as follows: New editions of Sailing Directions are corrected through thedate of publication shown above. Important information toamend material in the publication is available as a PublicationData Update (PDU) from the NGA Maritime Domain web site. Courses.— Courses are true, and are expressed in the samemanner as bearings. The directives “steer” and “make good” acourse mean, without exception, to proceed from a point of ori-gin along a track having the identical meridional angle as thedesignated course. Vessels following the directives must allowfor every influence tending to cause deviation from such track,and navigate so that the designated course is continuouslybeing made good. Currents.— Current directions are the true directions towardwhich currents set. Distances.— Distances are expressed in nautical miles of 1minute of latitude. Distances of less than 1 mile are expressedin meters, or tenths of miles. Geographic Names.— Geographic names are generallythose used by the nation having sovereignty. Names in paren-theses following another name are alternate names that mayappear on some charts. In general, alternate names are quotedonly in the principal description of the place. Diacritical marks,such as accents, cedillas, and circumflexes, which are relatedto specific letters in certain foreign languages, are not used inthe interest of typographical simplicity.Geographic names or their spellings do not necessarily re-flect recognition of the political status of an area by the UnitedStates Government. Heights.— Heights are referred to the plane of referenceused for that purpose on the charts and are expressed in meters.
