Whats the score with shore leave whilst you're alongside in the UK? As an example I live close to Portland port and over the last few months the Rosie has been alongside. If I was on my 4 month stint, what leave would I be allowed? Would I get from say 17:00 to 08:00 the next morning every day, or will I be on watchkeeping duties? I am joining as an app seaman next year. And yes I've searched the forum and can find no answers to this!
