“Being in a Masters role with over 30 year’s command experience, it was an interesting exercise to join the bridge and support the role of another Captain and observe how the crew operate in these scenarios, there is a lot to take back from this. It was great to be involved with the young team at West Nautical, great personalities and good knowledge of the industry”.Captain Hefin Rowlands
“The simulator training was fantastic, these types of training exercises are a must for us as Captains, I felt I learnt allot from particular scenarios and incidents that were given to us, we forget from time to time that these things can happen and we need to have this type of training to refresh us and remind us of what practice we put in place when we are on our own yachts”. He also mentioned “I have worked for large Management companies for over 13 years in the industry and I have not ever been offered this type of training before, I will be highly recommending this to other Captains to join next year”.Jean-Marc Bitouzet, relief Captain of 60m motoryacht St David
“The week has been a huge success. We had a group of 6 on the course which was the ideal number for time in the simulator, which ran 6 different exercises, and had Captains of different experiences from those who had commanded for over 30 years, to those experiencing the role for the first time”.Geoff Moore, Managing Director of West Nautical
“before this course the commercial NAEST Management Simulator training was the best I had in my career, this week beat it”Chief Office Daniel Hodgson
”It was a pleasure to work so closely with the Marine Schools staff and West Nautical’s office team, an honour to help enhance and encourage a bourgeoning safety management system. If all companies worked together in such a proactive way the seas would be a safer place.”Kate Gillespie
