Fog Signal – Dublin Bay 9th June 2016

Fog Signal – Dublin Bay

For those of your close to the harbour today you may be aware of a fog horn being sounded. The signal is being sounded by the ship “Ben Rinnes” which is at anchor waiting to go in to Dublin Port

The signal R (dot dash dot) in morse code is an International Signal for Prevention Collisions at sea and the ship is obliged to sound it whilst at anchor in restricted visibility – this is Maritime Law.

When the fog goes (or when the ship goes) the signals will stop.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
