ON THE ADAPTABILITY OF SAIL-EQUIPPED VESSEL ON THE JAPAN SEA TRAFFIC ROUTE

To aid an investigation into sail equipped vessels in the Sea of Japan, a questionnaire was sent to shipping companies. Results of the questionnaire showed that sailing vessels show good adaptability to the traffic route in the Sea of Japan because the vessels can sail in heavy weather conditions when other types of ship cannot. Mostly liquid cargo is carried on the traffic route on the Sea of Japan, due to the limited space on a sail equipped vessels, liquid cargo is more favourable because of cargo handling operations. The most important disadvantage of the sailing vessel is its manoeuvrability in a harbour.
