A good pilot must know that ship handling is not only affected by wind and sea. The invisible forces acting below the waterline are often much more powerful—bank 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.

This course looks at the ship-ship and ship-dock interactions that affect naval manoeuvring. These invisible forces are often insidious. Knowing them is the right way to avoid them or use them to reach our goal.
