General information:

Any vessel that uses the SOHAR anchorage area and leaves the area prior the first five free days will not be allowed back for a minimum period of ten days thereafter, to be eligible for another five-day free period.

If the vessel returns before the ten days had passed, it will be counted as five days, with counting immediately starting upon arrival.

This rule is in place to ensure fair usage of the anchorage area and to ensure that no party misuses the five days free given, based on the intention to leave the anchorage and then return free shortly thereafter for numerous times.

Any vessel that leaves the area for more than ten days are eligible to start fresh with free time subject to a maximum of two call periods, where after the same rule above will apply and will be counted as if the vessel has not left the anchorage. Therefore full charges should be paid.

(5 days free / 10 days away / 5 days free / 10 days away): Any return will then thereafter shall pay full charges, as if vessel has been at anchor for 10 days.
