A UK bulk carrier on a 12-month NFD Running Agreement has been trading outside Europe for a year but is now bound for Antwerp. Under what conditions may a crew member claim his discharge?

After either one voyage has been completed or 7 days have elapsed since his employment under the Agreement commenced, the seaman may give the employer notice to terminate the Agreement as specified in its Notice Clause, either in writing or orally before a witness.

If the ship in the previous question had returned to the UK and sailed from it again, but the seaman had not given notice to terminate his engagement in the UK, can he still leave the ship in Antwerp?

If the ship in the previous question is proceeding from the first UK arrival port to another, can the crew member’s engagement be prolonged by the master for any further period?
