Important update available for DKW 1811 and DKW 1812

The Dutch Hydrografic Service released the 2018 editions of the paper versions of the DKW 1811 and DKW 1812 for the Wadden Sea. Last Friday these updates became available through our weekly BaZ updates for the DWK 1800 series 2018.

The most important changes were made at major junctions with, a.o. the Schuitengat, Molengat, Pollendam and the new Robbengat at the 'Rug' on the Lauwersmeer. The depth lines, depth numbers and waterway marks around fairways and harbours are updated (See images below). On various other locations changes were made to the depth image and waterway marks.

More than half of all depth states from Rijkswaterstaat have been updated. These can be found on the chart in the form of waypoints shown as blue triangles, ideal for planning a route on tidal waters.

Great news for all sailors who venture outside of the Dutch open waters. Most of the NV-Verlag charts are available in the 2018 editions. Some new chart sets were added to the assortment and the charts for crossing the Atlantic Ocean have returned! Follow this link for a full overview of all NV-Verlag charts.

Trip around the Baltic
The popular Baltic chart sets are delivered as combination package: a paper chart set, a harbour plan book and a download with which the charts can be installed in WinGPS 5.

For voyages to the Baltic sea we recommend the use of our DKW 1800 series and our DKW German Bight. Both chart sets are updated weekly, connect seemlessly and will connect to the NV-Verlag Series 1 chart set.
