Camp David advertises with the following text:
"Authentic Style! The new Sea Pilots collection is dedicated to the navigation experts who guide the world's largest container ships safely into port in the harshest conditions."

In my opinion the text of a layman. Whether you like the clothes is certainly a question of taste:

What is authentic here?!

I look forward to receiving comments and opinions on this collection. Who likes it and who does not?

And no: Marine-Pilots.com don't get any money from Camp David for pointing out the new collection!

Statement of Stefano Stagnaro (HARBOUR PILOT)

"The launch of the HARBOUR PILOT brand stems from a long-time secret dream at long last coming true but, most importantly, it originates from the pride of carrying out a profession that deserves to be known and appreciated by the whole port-related sector and by the professions connected with it.

Therefore, the company’s objective is to raise awareness, by means of its clothing line, of the HARBOUR PILOT profession, as well as its values and relevant characteristics such as expertise, passion, determination, self-control, kindness, solidarity between categories and other port operators.
Our commitment consists in bringing the logo as far as possible, anywhere in the world where there is a port and a group of professionals carrying out their HARBOUR PILOT job in the most different situations and with different degrees of difficulty, fully aware of their own contribution to safety at sea. The objective is thus to enlarge the group of supporters of our job.
Your support is essential to the achievement of this ambitious goal. "

Video The life of a Deep Sea Pilot by Roger Francis

Found on YouTube. Created by "Blagdon Local History Society".

The fascinating tale told by Roger Francis about his life at sea and ultimately as a Deep Sea Pilot. The explanation in detail of the terrific responsibilities comes with tales of daring-do, near misses and other peoples' disasters. Roger's personal tale takes him from kiddy to cadet and from 3rd Mate to Master before he became a Deep Sea Pilot guiding shipping on the busiest shipping thoroughfare in the world - the Dover Straits. On top of this, there is love interest and action in war zones. Also how to navigate a 25knot Hovercraft Ferry in a complete blanket of fog to reach the exact landing spot within two three yards more than 25miles away. Could this be a career for you?
