Deputy Launching Authority
Day Time Job:
Retired Marine Pilot
I went to sea in 1972 obtaining my Master’s certificate in 1987, and I then joined Condor as Master in 1988. Two years’ later, I was invited to join the Company of Town Pilots and have been a Jersey pilot since then (28 years), becoming Master Pilot in 2005. During this time I also served as Assistant Harbourmaster for 19 years retiring from this role in February 2018. Following my retirement, I continue to provide relief pilotage duties and Jersey pilotage training to masters of vessels operating into Jersey. Having previously held the role of Deputy Launching Authority (DLA) for the RNLI from 1999-2010, I once again joined the RNLI as DLA for St Helier.
