All shipping companies carry out some form of navigational audits. This is usually done as part of a wider ISM audit, and whilst some companies do specify that navigation has to be audited whilst the vessel is at sea, it is often the case that these audits are conducted in port.
The idea is that a Navigation Assessment differs from an audit in that it allows the real time taken to carry out navigational activities to set the pace of the assessment, rather than compressing an audit into the time available. The aim is to have a thorough look at how a vessel is being navigated and provide guidance and assistance where required. Our sailing navigation assessment is carried out during a short coastal sailing of 3-5 days duration. This gives us the time required to carry out a thorough assessment and provide a comprehensive report and onboard mentoring, if required. Contact us for details.
