An anchor is an essential tool, often underestimated. However, dropping an anchor remains the last thing to do when there are no other options available, and in its simplicity can help us save a manoeuvre. In this course, we will see how to use the anchor practically to moor, unmoor, slow down or stop the ship by going through some of the manoeuvres performed. We will also see how and when to intervene to manage an emergency.
The learning outcomes of the course will include: understanding the anchors and how they work, gaining knowledge on chain cables and anchorage lines and learn about anchorage areas, and knowledge on how to turn on the anchor and how to moor with two anchors. Understanding of how to use an anchor in a manoeuvre for mooring, unmooring, and dredging, and knowledge of the use of the anchor in an emergency.
