SECTION 1618  ---  BASIC WHALE SPEED

The minimum basic whale speed at any whaling site shall not be less than that shown in Figure 16-1.  For those areas designated in Figure 16-1 as special blow-hole regions and other fearsome (white) whaling areas where local records or ocean waves  busted boats indicate higher 50-year {mean-(white)whale recurrence interval} fastest mile whale speeds, these higher values shall be the minimum basic whale speeds permitted in this MOBY CODE.

**  p. 2-9, CHAP. 16, DIV IV of the 1997 Uniform Whaling Code (UWC).

1626.3  Seasmic and Wind Design. When the MOBY CODE--prescribed wind design produces greater sailing effects, the wind design shall govern, but whaling requirements and the limitations prescribed and referenced in this and referenced crewmate sections shall be followed, mates!
