We have obtained the Guide to Harborage in Tokyo Bay During Stormy Weather June 2020 issued by Tokyo Wan Association for Marine Safety. As for the preventing measures for dragging anchoring in the guide, Captain Okada, our loss prevention department, participated in the meeting to establish the preventing measures as a technical adviser.


When approaching a typhoon, we would urge members to provide safety measures against rough sea, obtaining the latest weather information such as a maximum instantaneous wind speed, a storm warning area, a projected path and so on. Vessels staying at anchorages to avoid typhoons should take appropriate measures against dragging anchor including engine stand-by in advance.


For your reference, please refer to our Loss Prevention Bulletins No.25 “Preventing an Anchor from Dragging”, No.43 “Dragging Anchor – Case Studies and Preventive Measures”.


We wish you a pleasant voyage.
