This informative book is designed to support students working towards their Maritime and Coastguard Agency Certificate of Competency exams. Its structured approach to studying - using tables and bullet points to highlight key pieces of information - will help the reader gain confidence in the topic areas.
Section 1 — Navigation. Section 2 — Cargo Handling and Stowage. Section 3 — Response to Emergencies. Section 4 — Onboard Ship Operations. The purpose of this book is to support students studying towards their Maritime and Coastguard Agency professional exams. The contents of the book are structured around the MCA examination syllabus. The book has been written to provide a brief overview of each topic.
There are links to primary sources of information and documents which will help you gain a deeper understanding of each topic. The reason why I wanted to bring this book together was because on first reading, the syllabus can seem quite daunting.
By taking a structured approach to your studying and having knowledge of where to find key sources of information you can soon gain confidence in the topic areas.
Submit Review. Before proceeding to sea, there are a number of safety considerations. Is your navigational equipment in good working order? Voyage planning is a systematic process designed to ensure you consider all eventualities that your ship may encounter when at sea.
It should take your ship from berth to berth. There are four distinct stages: 1. The sources of information can be broken down into four categories. Overview of the Voyage To get an understanding about any limitations or restrictions on where your ship can navigate safely. Coastal Passage Coastal navigation presents a number of challenges, such as proximity to navigational hazards and an increase in traffic density. The Appraisal stage should also include an appraisal report given to the Master, before proceeding to the planning stage.
It considers both routine and non-routine emergency activities. The result of the planning stage may be communicated to the bridge team by producing a number of documents, which may include: 1. A visual representation of the voyage Lines plotted on a chart or ECDIS that show the courses to steer and highlight the proximity of navigational hazards.
Information to assist in the safe navigation of the ship, such as parallel index lines, 5 transits, sector lights, wheel over position may be highlighted. Voyage milestone information such as waypoints, reporting points, call to action points for the crew may also be included, providing a visual overview of all voyage activities.
A summary of the passage plan in written form This may be presented as a table showing each waypoint, the course to steer and any significant voyage milestones that the navigator should be aware of.
It should give an overview of the voyage and allow the navigator to calculate estimated times of arrival ETAs. A navigational workbook Certain areas within the voyage plan may be critical areas of navigation, such as entering and leaving port.
The navigational workbook gives a more detailed narrative that may include information from coastal navigation publications identified in the appraisal stage. The workbook provides the bridge management team with a ship specific reference source of navigational information that will allow them to make safety critical decisions and ensure the ship remains on its planned track.
A pilotage plan This is part of the overall passage plan and is necessary when the ship is navigating in mandatory or non- mandatory pilotage waters either with or without a local Pilot as part of the bridge team. Its purpose is to identify local requirements and assist with navigation when in close proximity to navigational hazards. When plotting information on a paper chart or displaying information on the ENC, the following considerations should be taken into account: Tracks should be laid on the chart from berth to berth indicating the pre-determined margins of error i.
Danger areas are highlighted on the chart, as are features which may be useful to navigation. In the event of an emergency, contingency plans are also considered.
The plan is approved by the Master prior to sailing and must be kept on board the ship for 12 months. This may indicate an approach to a potential danger or hazard. On coastal passage, beam bearings or prominent landmarks can be used to assist the navigator on approach to a waypoint. Consider potential traffic density and proximity to potential hazards.
These may include lighthouses, headlands and sector lights. These can be used as leading marks and lights and may indicate a channel or deep water. These can be marked on the chart, e. ETAs at critical points of the plan can also be calculated. Times of high water and the latest meteorological information can be applied to develop an understanding of the conditions the ship is likely to face throughout the voyage.
Any necessary deviations are amended in the plan and the bridge management team advised. The navigational equipment is monitored and checked prior to departure and on passage. For paper charts, general rule of thumb is that as a minimum, the position plotting interval should be half the time it would take for the ship to encounter a navigational hazard.
There are circumstances that may require the passage plan to be amended. Proper procedures should be followed in the event of a change to the passage plan. Any risks should be identified and the appraisal and planning stages revisited. The Master should be informed for approval and any changes communicated to the bridge team.
