Emergency Towage Exercises
From time to time Masters and Owners may be requested, through the Agent to permit the vessel to be used in emergency towage exercises when entering or leaving port.
These exercises will be carried out under the strict requirements of the risk assessments undertaken for such exercises, the main purpose being to train Pilots and Tug Masters in emergency towage procedures.
All such exercises are undertaken under the United Kingdom Standard Conditions for Towage and other Services, as revised. However, the costs of any damage to towlines will not be sought from the ship.
