QHM WEB SITE

7. The QHM 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 daily Movements signal is a signal 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 Friday. The message primarily covers Naval and Ferry shipping movements. It does not cover merchant traffic in and out of the Cattewater where commercial practices apply. The message gives tidal information, times of sunrise and sunset and the status of PLNTM and PLYMNAVWARNS. It is primarily for Naval authorities but other mariners may find it of use. Organisers of sail racing events in the Sound or Hamoaze are encouraged to use this facility. Notwithstanding programmed movements, mariners are reminded that plans 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:
