Believe it or not, this is the 24th issue of The Navigator. It doesn’t seem like nearly eight years have passed since our very first issues rolled off the printing presses back in October 2012. How the world has changed since then! The global spread of Covid-19 has resulted in our lives changing in ways we would have never thought possible even a few months ago. We hope all our readers are staying safe in these strange times. Due to the global restrictions placed on us right now, it may take more time than usual to distribute printed copies this time round. However, we are very much available digitally and would urge you to tell everyone where they can find this latest edition of The Navigator, ready to read online or download as a PDF from our Navigator pages.
Looking ahead to more positive times, we’re very excited about producing our 25th issue of The Navigator towards the end of this year. One of our favourite things about The Navigator is hearing back from our readers, and we would love to include lots of stories about how the magazine has impacted upon your professional life and boosted your career. Perhaps you’ve been inspired to pursue a new area in your CPD. Have any of our ‘take ten’ tips prompted a change in behaviour in the bridge of your vessel? Or has your rise up the ranks been accompanied the whole way by The Navigator and its thought-provoking content?
Do get in touch and let us know how The Navigator has influenced you over the past eight years. We look forward to hearing from you!
The piece on situational awareness published in February 2020 was expository. The message I learnt is that situational awareness is a skill that requires experience and most of all total commitment. I will be going to college for my Chief Mate’s licence in the UK, and it’s my aim to see how I can pass on this insight to my colleagues there.
LNG River Niger
It’s really a small world that has enabled me to see the copy of this publication that I brought onto MT Eastern Liberty during my apprenticeship year still displayed on the bridge in the exact location where I left it. Now that I have become a fullyfledged Second Officer on the same vessel, it remains perfectly intact and is still being used during our discussions whenever we have navigational audits. I hope this story inspires my fellow seafarers to continue pursuing their dreams in this ever-changing maritime industry.

It’s really a small world that has enabled me to see the copy of this publication that I brought onto MT Eastern Liberty during my apprenticeship year still displayed on the bridge in the exact location where I left it. Now that I have become a fullyfledged Second Officer on the same I’m managing to stay positive amidst the Covid-19 pandemic when we can’t go ashore, can’t change crew, but we can read The Navigator! Thank you for this very helpful issue about how assessments in the workplace promote professionalism and offer room for growth. Kudos to us all!
