Pilots and their relationship with bridge teams is the focus of the latest edition of The Navigator, the magazine available for free to all seafarers from The Nautical Institute.
Issue 16 examines how best to support a pilot’s skills when they come on board a vessel and how to maintain an excellent relationship with them, both during and after their manoeuvres into and within the port.
Emma Ward, Editor of The Navigator, said: ‘The relationship between pilots and bridge teams is unique. It relies on teamwork, co-operation and smart risk assessment skills on both sides. Being able to share best practice and discuss the opportunities and challenges surrounding pilotage is crucial, which is why we have concentrated on the topic for this issue of The Navigator.’
