First Open Water (FOW)

First Open Water (FOW). This expression in a fixture report or in a charterparty refers to the date when a port is free from ice conditions sufficiently to allow ships to enter, load /discharge and leave. For example, a ship can be fixed to “ . . . load at First Open Water St Lawrence Seaway . . . “.
