Lighthouses, buoys and navigational aids are indispensable to the mariner; however, they are only as useful as the ability of the mariner to read them. Apart from being able to read and understand the different marks, one must also appreciate the limitations of such marks, to make a full appraisal and a complete risk assessment during all stages of voyage planning.

A good pilot must know that naval manoeuvring is not only affected by wind and sea. The invisible forces acting below the waterline are often much more powerful. Banks effects, tidal currents, ship interactions, etc. A pilot needs to consider this, evaluate and then adapt it to suit the current situation; ensuring a successful outcome.

Harbour tugs are fascinating, adventurous and complex. A tugboat Captain must well know the theory surrounding these vessels and, even more, must have the ability to shape it with his own experience in the environment in which he works, considering the numerous variables and then adapt everything to the style of manoeuvre of the pilot on duty. Not everyone can stand out in this work. The Port Tug Course deals with important topics; as we always say: we propose the theory actually necessary for practice.

Shallow Water Effects present errors in manoeuvring which if unnoticed are extremely dangerous and can lead to grounding or collision. During this course, Bernoulli ́s Principle, Squat, Bank Effect including Bank Suction and Bow Cushion and Interaction will be discussed in detail in addition to the actions that should be taken by a ship in order to avoid disasters resulting from these Effects. Therefore, this course aims to help seafarers recognise when these effects are acting on their vessel and the proper actions to be taken in different circumstances.

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.

When facing a manoeuvring test, it is not uncommon that the first topic you come across is precisely the evolutionary effects of the propellers. To better understand this aspect, it is necessary to briefly mention the different characteristics between fix-pitch and variable-pitch propellers and then - with some examples - fix this information with the reasoning developed to haul a ship to the quay. But that's not enough, because there are many other aspects to consider.
