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.
