Braemar Yacht Services – Tuesday Technical Teach Ins

Tuesday Technical Teach Ins

Braemar Yacht Services will be running a series of monthly ”Tuesday Technical Teach Ins” during 2018.  Our goal is to tackle areas that we believe will be of interest to underwriters, claims handlers and brokers, highlighting technical issues that bear on risk awareness, risk mitigation and incident prevention.  These presentations will accrue CPD points.

Our provisional programme is as follows:

Tuesday 13 February 2018:

“The value and limitations of using 3D underwater sonar in avoiding groundings and collisions with submerged objects” – presented by a team from FarSounder.

The aim of this presentation is to familiarise attendees with the theory and practice of using forward looking 3D sonar for safe navigation in order to avoid groundings and submerged objects; to set out the technical and operational constraints of using forward looking sonar; to discuss technical developments in the latest generation of forward looking sonar; and, to look at case studies in which use of forward looking 3D sonar may have avoided serious losses.

Tuesday 13 March 2018:

“The integration of safe flight deck operations into superyachts through design and training, accident rates, accident prevention and regulation” –  presented by a team from Helidecks.

With the average size of superyachts continuing to increase, many owners are increasingly looking to incorporate a flight deck, either for land on or for touch and go operations, raising a significant range of additional risks.  The aim of this presentation is to discuss how flight deck operations can be safely integrated into yacht designs; the limitations on the size and type of aircraft allowed to use the facilities; current requirements regarding training and certification of both flight crew and pilots; a review of accident statistics; and, to review some case studies from recent incidents to look at where claims could have been avoided.

Tuesday 17 April 2018:

“Software and hardware approaches to mitigating the cyber security threat on the latest generation of superyachts in which every system onboard is potentially connected to the internet” – presented by CDS Marine and Cal Leeming.

With the latest generation of superyachts and those coming out of major refits being internet connected 24/7, the risk of losses from cyber security breaches of some form is inevitably going to increase. This presentation aims to address areas of vulnerability on superyachts; how the threat is expected to develop as technology evolves; how to mitigate the risks from unauthorised access through training and hardware solutions; and some case studies looking at potential cyber loss scenarios and how potential claims might be avoided.
