Ship time applications for RV Navicula

Each year around November, a call for ship time proposals is announced for RV Navicula. The cruise schedule will be composed following a careful review of the applications. To request equipment and technical support for cruises, a special 'Technique Application Form' (TAF) is available, the so-called TAF-NAV. In order to comply with safety regulations it is mandatory to compile a list of cruise participants. All documents and forms that are useful or essential when planning a cruise on RV Navicula can be found on the 'Forms and Checklists' page.
