Deep Water Handling

Turbulent seas and extreme weather can make sailing conditions perilous. Having a crew who are trained to understand how to minimize risks and manage the vessel under duress can make all the difference when trying to avoid loss of life.

Deep Water Handling, a brand new training program from Videotel Marine International, examines the situations ships face in deep water and advises how best to address them.

Nigel Cleave, CEO of Videotel, said, “Seafarers clearly can’t control the weather. However, there is usually action which can be taken by the Master or the Officer of the Watch which can minimize or even avoid any risk.”

Deep Water Handling is particularly appropriate for junior deck officers and above, including those studying for relevant qualifications. The program, which is available in VOD (Videotel On Demand), DVD and eLearning Computer-Based Training (CBT) formats, is also useful for non-seafarers who need to understand the issues faced at sea, particularly court or tribunal officials.

The course covers ship stability, head seas, beam seas, stern seas, complex rolling motions in beam and stern seas, parametric rolling, as well as raising awareness and recommending actions to be taken. It addresses regulations relating to STCW Table A-II/1, A-II/2 and A-II/3.

Good ship handling in deep water means monitoring those factors which cannot be controlled and managing those that can, such as the ship’s speed, course, schedule, load factors and other variables. It is a vital part of keeping the ship, its crew and its cargo safe.

Deep Water Ship Handling is produced in association with Norwest Interaction Ltd. and is the second program involving this collaboration. The company has also assisted with the production of Videotel’s Hydrodynamics program which explains the basic hydrodynamic principles underlying interaction and suggests ways of avoiding or reducing its effects.
