Master Convicted for Going the Wrong Way
The UK Maritime and Coastguard Agency issued a Press Notice stating that the master of a cargo ship pled guilty to entering and
proceeding over 14.5 miles in the wrong direction in the Dover Straits Traffic Separation Scheme (TSS). The maneuver caused one
vessel to take evasive action and resulted in six close quarters situations. The master was fined £14,000, plus £6,042 costs. (HK Law).
