Speed thru Turkish Strait is 10 knots  against the shore. We strongly recommend ships to advise VTS sectors  directly, in case over speeding requested by pilots or other  authorities. Because, since pilots and VTS communicate in Turkish, Master of the vessel should get an other confirmation directly from VTS  in English for their approval to over speed thru Turkish Straits when it  is needed for the safety. Over speeding without the approval of VTS is  subject to fine and delays. Vessels having speed less then 4 knots/hr to  the ground are subject to the escort tug boat assistance service on  ships account.
