Pilotage Wisdom
Let us remind ourselves every day of the principles of safe seamanship!

Routine, negligence or even inexperience are the breeding ground for every disaster.


Daniel Defoe
was an English narrator and novelist and intervened in political and religious disputes of his time with numerous pamphlets. He later added a "De" to his name, which gave his name an aristocratic sound.

He was - among other things - the author of the well-known book "Robinson Crusoe".

Daniel Foe was born the son of James Foe, a wealthy London tallow merchant and member of the "Worshipful Company of Butchers", and his wife Annie. The year and place of birth are not known with certainty. Various sources mention the years 1659 to 1662 as probable. Fore Street, Parish of St. Giles Cripple, London, is generally regarded as his birthplace.

Video Ten less known facts about Kenya’s first female Marine Pilot, Elizabeth Marami

Elizabeth Marami, 28, has made history by becoming Kenya’s first female marine pilot. Born and bred in the coastal city Mombasa, Marami initially studied law at the University of Nairobi, but later changed course and went on to pursue navigation in Alexandria, Egypt for 5 years. “I always grew up knowing that I wanted to do something different, Something out of the ordinary. Being awarded a scholarship to pursue this career was God’s answered prayer…,” she says.

Her job as a marine pilot entails assisting vessels with coming into territorial waters because according to law, vessels entering a country’s territorial waters may not progress to the harbor without officials.

Elizabeth Marami is Kenya's first female marine pilot. She gave a speech during President Uhuru's commissioning of Bandari Maritime Academy.
