The Nautical Institute: Bridge Team Management
A Practical Guide
By reinforcing the importance of an effective bridge team and good leadership, this practical guide demonstrates that effective planning and sound navigational practice ensure the ship's safe and timely arrival in port. In particular, Capt Swift reminds us that maritime incidents rarely arise from a single mistake but rather from a chain of errors, and in clear and accessible language highlights some of the common risk areas.
Bridge Team Management offers solid practical guidance on navigating in coastal and estuarial waters. Proper emphasis is placed on the importance of clear communication, for example when approaching pilotage waters, and on creating a supportive professional relationship between the bridge team and the pilot.
Capt Bailey's section on navigating with integrated bridge systems and ECSs remains a useful primer on the subject, and the book also contains a helpful point-by-point commentary on the navigational aspects of STCW 95.
