Who was at Titanic's helm during the sea-trials?

Only one quartermaster, or did each of them participate?

Or was the ship steered by an officer or someone else?

I don't know if anybody bothered keeping a special record of it, but I checked the Particulars of Engagement and all six quartermasters were signed onboard on 25 March, 1912. I suspect they just took their normal turns at the wheel based on the watch rotation. Likely as not, the information was noted in the log. Unfortunately, the log is still with the ship.

Cordially,
