Exercises 2020


Each team will be required to compete in 6 different exercises, which comprise the following marine-related areas:

  1. Seamanship
  2. Cargo Work
  3. Shiphandling/Navigation
  4. Offshore Operations
  5. Dynamic Positioning
  6. Search and Rescue

As some of these nautical skills may be new to some of the student participants (especially 1st year students), preparation material for each exercise will be provided prior to competition day. This information will be directly related to the tasks that the participants would be expected to know and perform. Students may also reach out to the Exercise Leads, who are the volunteer Master Mariners who design the exercises. Contacts for these Exercise Leads are included in the Exercise Summaries document attached below.

The PDF attachment below provides a brief summation of the 6 exercises being developed for NSC 2020.
