Pilotage is compulsory for all vessels with the pilot being taken on board 1.6 miles and 155º off the main breakwater. Pilot transfer is by pilot boat, but there are plans to introduce a helicopter transfer service at Cape Town. Navigation is subject to VTS (Vessel Tracking System), and tug service is provided by four tugs. The harbour and Table Bay are subject to strong winds during the Cape winter (April to September) that can disrupt cargo and ship working in the port.
