Govenek of Ladram Whitby bound.


 






The Govenek of Ladram is bound for Whitby in the North Sea...


her VesselTracker AIS route shows how she has now passed through one of the world's busiest shipping lanes...



after successfully negotiating the traffic separation scheme in the English Channel - north bound boats coming from the English coast have to cross - at near 90ยบ - in order to join the correct shipping lane - just like a dual carriageway there is 'no-go' area between the two lanes which is why they are referred to as traffic separation schemes.
