‘Look out’ for the latest issue of The Navigator magazine

by admin


08.10.18  – The crucial role of the ship’s lookout is the focus of the latest edition of The Navigator from The Nautical Institute, which is now available for download.

In the issue, Captain Rajiv Singh MNI takes a close look at the inner workings of the human eye, while Captain Trevor Bailey FNI provides valuable insight into the art of keeping watch on the bridge.

Emma Ward, Editor of The Navigator, explains: “Keeping watch is not always as straightforward as one might imagine. All kinds of situations call for carefully honed appraisal skills, such as heavy traffic or limited visibility. We hope this issue of The Navigator will spark discussion and help focus our readers’ minds on how to be an effective lookout.”

David Patraiko, Director of Projects for The Nautical Institute, added: “We want to highlight the importance of maintaining focus and alertness while keeping watch, and avoiding becoming distracted by work or worries elsewhere. We are keen that our readers become fully aware of their strengths and weaknesses in their watchkeeping performance and know exactly when to call for assistance. All of these issues and more are covered in the latest issue of The Navigator.”  

The Nautical Institute launched its ‘Navigator Distributor’ scheme in 2015, encouraging a wider, global distribution of the free, 12-page magazine to as many professional marine navigators as possible. Anyone interested in finding out how their organisation can take part in the scheme should visit www.nautinst.org/thenavigator, where there are also previous issues available to download.

The Navigator is produced by The Nautical Institute with support from the Royal Institute of Navigation. Sponsored by IFAN and Trinity House, it is available in both print and digital form via The Nautical Institute website. Copies are currently distributed alongside The Nautical Institute’s membership journal, Seaways, as well as through missions and maritime training establishments.
