Предлагаем ознакомиться с новостями Морского института Великобритании (МИВ). Наибольший интерес вызывает новость о том, что МИВ стал консультативной организацией — членом Международного морского комитета (Comite Maritime International — CMI).

Can you help distribute The Navigator?
The Navigator
The Nautical Institute’s campaign to get copies of its free magazine The Navigatoronto every SOLAS ship is gathering pace.
Following the first meeting for distributors on 3 July, our new distributor contacts have so far signed up to distribute more than 20,000 copies.
The magazine champions the role of marine navigators worldwide and is dedicated to inspiring professionalism in those who serve in that role. Help us to get all navigators reading their own magazine. If you don’t know it, check it out online. If you read it, share it with friends and colleagues and introduce it to your management team. If you visit ships regularly, sign up to be a distributor.
Working under the influence
The dangers of fatigue
Working while fatigued is equivalent to working while under the influence of alcohol.
That striking statement by the editor of MARS Report 2014 44 brings home the importance of adequate and continuous sleep for all crew and of keeping a proper lookout.
A small container ship hit the sea wall when the OOW, alone on the bridge in the dark, fell asleep. We need to learn the lessons of fatigue. Please share what you have learned from incidents and near-misses by emailing a report via our Mariners’ Alerting and Reporting Scheme (MARS) Your report will be carefully edited to preserve confidentiality.
Is your DP application correct?
DP Verification Guide
Are you about to apply for a DP certificate? If so, be sure to check out our new Verification Guide along with the other Help documentsavailable on our website.
The guide aims to help prospective DPOs and companies check that applications are correct prior to submission and contains details of the most common errors we encounter when verifying DP applications.
To help improve service levels, The Nautical Institute has strengthened the requirements it applies to applications submitted under its Dynamic Positioning certification scheme. From 26th May this year, applications that are incorrect or incomplete are being returned to the candidate for re-submission.
Tall ship scheme coming soon
Tall Ship
The Nautical Institute recently joined forces with Sail Training International to review its Square Rig Certificate scheme to bring it into line with modern codes and practice and make it more accessible to tall ship sailors who may not sail full time or hold an STCW certificate of competency.
The newly created International Sail Endorsement Scheme (ISES) will be available from September 2014 and will welcome new candidates, recognise experienced candidates and allow existing square rig certificate holders to obtain the new international sail endorsement.
Further details of the scheme will be published in Seaways and will also be available on The Nautical Institute website.
Give something back to MARS
Everyone within the maritime industry has benefitted from The Nautical Institute’s (MARS) — and that includes you.
Even if you’ve never read a MARS report, the lessons contained in these confidential reports of near-misses and accidents (including the fractured arm shown left) are freely available to all to improve safety at sea.
You can help us extend the reach of MARS by…
  • reading reports online, learning the lessons and passing them on
  • emailing us reports on your own experiences (and what you have learned)
  • becoming a MARS Ambassador and promoting the scheme to mariners in your area, nautical college students, shipping companies and port authorities.
To find out more about how you can contribute contact MARS editor, Capt Paul Drouin AFNI, at

Capt Krishnamurthi FNI
«Since the day I answered the call of the sea 30 years ago, I always knew sharing knowledge and professional expertise was important to my career and would take me beyond just a certificate of competency. Membership of The Nautical Institute showed me how. My only regret is that I didn’t join sooner.» Capt Krishnamurthi FNI, India (immediate past President of The Nautical Institute)
