Teignmouth Pilot off to sea
On the 28th June 2008 the Teignmouth Pilot boat is off to sea to escort RMS Libava into dock.
At Teignmouth the Pilot escorts the ship into dock rather than the pilot having to jump onto incoming ships out at sea.
It is a tricky entrance to the River Teign with shifting sandbanks and we regularly have stranded vessels when the skippers try to guide themselves in!!
