(RT3 = Transas file format)

The following routes are the routes favored by the pilots of Gothenburg. Note that the choice of route is related to the vessel's draft or other characteristics, such as vessel size, wind, visibility, etc. that may affect the choice of route.

Generally speaking, the route south of the Trubaduren Lighthouse should be the first choice if the draft is > 10 meters. Often this coincides with choosing North Channel, but not necessarily.

 NB! Right-click on the link, appropriate for your ship and the itinerary of your choice, in the table below. A dialog box opens, click "Save As" and select the appropriate destination directory to save the file in.
