FUNDAMENTAL CAUSE OF 'WEATHER'


Solent boat training

Returned air falls

to cool sea

Warm air rising

off land creates LOW PRESSURE

SEA BREEZE - EARLY


Solent boat training

Returned air falls

to cool sea

Clouds form as damp air off sea rises and condenses

SEA BREEZE - ESTABLISHED

Cool air descends

as land cools quickly

Air off warm sea

PILOTAGE

(Navigating Safely in Confined Waters)

  • USE ALL SIGNPOSTS AVAILABLE

    • Buoys & lights

    • Charted landmarks

    • Transits, clearing bearings

    • Soundings etc.

  • PRE-PLAN

    • Use large scale charts

    • Pilot books

    • Local knowledge

    • As detailed as necessary for the task


Solent boat training

DETAIL NEEDED

Start of pilotage

Distance and Course to Steer to next mark

Use 6 minute marks for high speed navigation

Repeat until destination reached

Use transits and clearing bearings to

avoid hazards

PASSAGE PLANNING

  • Define objective

  • Constraints on operation

    • Crew, time available etc

  • Assemble navigation equipment

  • Charts, Pilots, Tide Tables and

  • Tidal Stream Atlases

  • Plan provisions (including emergency stock)

  • Personal kit


Solent boat training

PASSAGE PLANNING

  • Constraints on departure - locks, sills?

    • If so - departure time is set within these limits -

    • PlanFORWARD

  • Constraints on arrival - locks, sills?

    • If so - arrival time is set between these limits -

    • PlanBACKWARDS

  • Passage constraints - races, strong tides?

    • If so - transit time is set by the phenomenon

  • If more than one constraint

    • Plan waiting period when appropriate


Solent boat training

PASSAGE PLANNING

  • Calculate distance and expected passage time

  • Calculate times between waypoints for high

  • speed navigation

  • Plan for departure/arrival by day/night

  • Plan for optimum use of tide

  • Plan waypoints

  • Is fuel capacity adequate for passage?

    • If not, plan refuelling stops

Fid

Shank

(to secure stock)

Stock

Fluke

Crown

Shank


Solent boat training

  • Poor power/weight ratio

  • Upstanding fluke can foul chain

  • Stock pin needs wire mousing

  • Can stow flat

  • Good on rock

  • Few moving parts

Grapnel

  • Easily folded

  • Best in weed

  • Useful in small

  • craft

  • Poor power/weight ratio

  • Clumsy to handle

  • Can pinch fingers

Fisherman


Solent boat training

CQR

  • Good power/weight ratio

  • Plough digs into most types of ground

  • Forged steel very strong

  • Difficult to stow

  • Can capsize (but usually resets)

Danforth

  • Shingle can jam or trip

  • Not good on rock

  • Hard to break out of mud

  • Can catch fingers

  • Can stow flat

  • Good holding in soft ground


Solent boat training

Bruce

GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEM (GPS)


Solent boat training

GPS - FIX ERROR

Position Spheres


Solent boat training

GPS - POTENTIAL LIMITATIONS

  • Selective Availability

    • Random error is built into civilian signal

    • 95% of fixes within 100m

    • Can be corrected with Differential GPS

  • Similar errors to visual fix when intersection

  • much less than 60 degrees

  • Shape of earth - need to use correct datum or

  • can be as much as 150 metres in error

HELICOPTER RESCUE

  • Communicate on VHF

  • Pilot will give exact course under sail or power (Usually wind on port bow)

  • Brief crew early as too noisy later

  • Weighted Hi-Line lowered

  • Earth in sea or on boat before

  • handling DO NOT MAKE FAST

  • Pull as directed - stow loosely in bucket

  • Let diver touch boat before you

  • touch him

SAFETY HARNESSES & LIFEJACKETS

  • WEAR SAFETY HARNESS

  • If the boat is reefed or would be if hard

  • on the wind

  • If sighting & recovery of YOUR BODY

  • would be difficult - at night, in fog etc.

  • If about to abandon the vessel

Harness lanyard clipped to jackstay allows crew to go forward while secured

Harness lanyard

clipped to strongpoint

in cockpit

  • WEAR A LIFEJACKET

  • For dinghy journeys, especially at night

  • In fog (due to risk of collision)

  • If about to abandon the vessel
