Wind drift making headway - practical experiments for voyage planning and Rule of Thumb


published on 7 April 2021 217 -

Found on YouTube. Created by "ISSIMS - Innovative Ship Simulation". Originally published on 2021-03-08.
Here are described some experiments to get data for voyage planning:
- how to measure wind effects and prepare ship specific diagrams to estimate required drift angles and also rudder angles for wind balance
- to be applied for voyage planning, considering expected operational conditions, specifically for preparing manoeuvring plans for Port arrival and departure planning!
- analysing theses data a simple formula could be derived to calculate the drift angle ß depending on absolute wind speed VA, encounter angle aA and ship speed Vs to:
ß= arctan (CD*(VA +Vs*cos aA)*sin aA)/Vs)
And all this is demonstrated by means of the unique SAMMON Planning software based on Fast Time Simulation of ship manoeuvres...
Enjoy, share and give some thumbs up, if you are satisfied with the movie - and my haircut!

In my experience, a ship moving ahead, rudder amidships, the ship will develop a rate of turn into the wind. However the first manoeuvre on this simulator with rudder midships does not show this, in fact no RoT at all. Quite often at work, I will tell the bridge team I am about to start a turn to starboard/port, order midships and then try to crack a joke about the ship has been here before and knows where to go!!

Video How Ship Anchor Works? - Procedure For Anchoring a Ship at Sea

published on 11 July 2020

#Anchor #shipanchor #windlass Anchoring is one of the very frequent operations onboard ships. A number of variables and external factors influence the duration and location of an anchoring operation. While the type of seabed is of utmost importance during anchoring, soft muddy grounds or clay bottoms are best preferred. It should be taken care that the anchoring bottom is free of power lines, submarine cables, pipelines or rocks. Various methods on anchoring include consideration of...

Video Hamburg-Süd 10.000-TEU container ship breached hull in ferry pontoon contact in Brazil

published on 27 June 2021

Container ship CAP SAN ANTONIO contacted landing pontoon of Santos – Guaruja commute ferry in the afternoon Jun 20, while leaving Santos, Brazil. The ship dragged pontoon for some time, and sustained portside hull breach above waterline, probably in ballast tank area. CAP SAN ANTONIO was taken to outer anchorage and anchored, for investigation, survey, probably for some temporary repairs. She’s bound for Paranagua.

Video Successful overtaking of another ship in a canal - Port Revel Shiphandling

published on 10 May 2020

Manoeuvring large ships at close quarters and on shallow water is one of the most difficult aspects of shiphandling because of the complex hydraulic interactions depending on the ships' speeds, on the water depth and on lateral restrictions like in canals. Training is conducted both on meeting and on overtaking ships in shallow waters. This video shows how overtaking in a canal should be conducted: come in close to the stern and then move away from the bow that will be sucked towards your...

Article 1,000 Combinations around - Which one is correct?

by Arie Palmers, Netherlands - published on 22 October 2020

Before you, you see my third article on pilot boarding arrangements. After my two previous articles ‘1000 ways to secure a pilot ladder’ and ‘1000 ladders around’, I have received a lot of feedback and also questions to get deeper into the matter of combinations and embarkation platforms.
