They are numbered consecutively starting at the beginning of the year and a list of those remaining in force is included on the daily movements signal. PLYMNAVWARNS are sent by signal to all local Ministry of Defence vessels and shore authorities and by email to local commercial operators and marinas. A copy of Plymouth Navigational Warnings may also be obtained from QHM’s web site at the following site: www.qhm.mod.uk/plymouth/port/navwarn

QHM WEB SITE

7. QHM’s web site – www.qhm.mod.uk/plymouth contains much information relevant to mariners, including the Dockyard Port of Plymouth Order 2020, 2021 Water Events Diary, PLNTMs, Plymnavwarns, the Daily Movements Programme and a plethora of recreational information.

THE DAILY MOVEMENTS PROGRAMME

 

8. The Movements signal is a message issued at 1100 GMT daily that gives details of known shipping movements in and out of the port for the following day. Movement messages for Saturday, Sunday and Monday are issued on Fridays. The message primarily covers Naval and Ferry shipping movements. It consequently should not be relied upon for traffic in and out of the Cattewater where commercial practices apply. The message also gives tidal information, sunrise and sunset times, and the status of PLNTM and PLYMNAVWARNS. It is primarily for Naval authorities but other mariners may find it of assistance. Organisers of sail racing events in the Sound or Hamoaze are encouraged to use this facility. Notwithstanding the programmed movements, mariners are reminded that it is but a plan; it may change, and may thus not represent what is truly happening. It should be consulted after 1200 daily for the following day’s shipping movements. Leisure users are to be aware there is a sanitised copy of movements which is posted on the web at the following site:
