Members with ships visiting Chittagong will be interested in the following advice provided by the Club’s local correspondent.
1. Monsoon season
The months of June and July are the peak period of the monsoon season in Bangladesh, during which heavy rainfall is experienced. Ships working at Chittagong Harbour, and those in the outer anchorage, should be vigilant and alert to the presence of incoming rain in order to prevent cargo damage claims as a result of rain water entering the holds.
