Jersey: Pierre Chays, Harbour Pilot and Marine Safety Manager


published on 27 May 2020 288 -

In the second of our series focusing on ‘Our people at ports’, we catch up with Pierre Chays, our Marine Safety Manager and Pilot who gives us a behind the scenes look at what our Harbours Team is doing during these difficult times in supporting the movement of essential freight services in and out of the Island.

Video Husky Salvage Cruise Ship Pilot Run, Road Town, Tortola, BVI

published on 28 June 2022

In the pre-dawn hours and many other times of the day, local pilots safely guide cruise ships and cargo ships into BVI ports.
