Webinar: Pilot Ladder Arrangements: A Pilot's Perspective on Best Practices (18 Sept. 2023)


published on 29 August 2023 335 -

RightShip continues its webinar series on pilot ladder arrangements. On September 18th, we’re asking two marine pilots to share their first-hand perspectives on pilot ladder arrangement best practices.

Meet our guest speakers:

Captain Arie Palmers
Arie went to sea in 1993, working for the Royal Netherlands Navy on mine countermeasure vessels. Since then, he has worked in a range of maritime roles, including re-educating young offenders on training vessels and working on towing and offshore. In 2008, he apprenticed as a marine pilot and has since become a vocal advocate for pilot safety and other issues.

Captain Adam Roberts
Adam started his formal career as a deck cadet, spending 17 years sailing through the ranks and serving short office secondments before being appointed as Master. He spent five years sailing as Master on LNG Tankers before he joined Port Kembla as a trainee Marine Pilot in 2011. Adam is a Vice President of IMPA and Chairs the IMPA Safety Committee.

In addition to hearing these two perspectives, RightShip’s experts will explore issues from the most-asked questions from our previous webinar.

We will also welcome questions from the audience at the end of the webinar.
