This event lies in the past.
25 March 2021

Can navigators have blind trust in either instrument or visual navigation – of course not, a balance is needed. In this webinar experienced Master and Pilot Capt Ed Verbeek reflects on his experience developing using and teaching navigation techniques. He explores the use of navigation layers and predictive algorithms, looking at ECDIS and PPU. He will also give examples of how the PPU can support both Pilots and ship’s crews and draws on lessons from the aviation industry.   

Capt Ed Verbeek, FNI

Ed Verbeek has been educated as Master Mariner and has a Master’s degree in Human Factors and System Safety issued by Lund University. He has been elected Fellow of the Nautical Institute.

Video Pilot Boat - Carnival Cruise at Port Canaveral

This is a video of the cruise ship pilot boat that picks up the pilot once he has navigated the ship out of the port. This is a requirement of all cruise ships coming into and leaving out of ports. We also noticed them at the Bahamas. I was able to capture this one on my last cruise leaving out of Port Canaveral... watch as the pilot jumps from the cruise ship to the pilot boat while both are moving! :)
