The Nautical Institute: Bridge Watchkeeping
A Practical Guide
The aim of this practical self-study guide is to enhance standards of bridge watchkeeping. Written by a team of experienced Masters and officers, the carefully constructed self-assessment programme is used by many companies for training bridge watchkeepers. It covers all aspects of bridge work, from testing the gear before sailing to error management and record-keeping.
By working through the guide, OOWs should gain a better understanding of their watchkeeping duties. These include safe, effective ways of accepting, conducting and handling over the watch; monitoring equipment and error-checking; supporting the Master and pilot; and working as a member of the bridge team. Throughout the book, self-assessment questions encourage deeper thinking about critical issues.
