The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch.

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!!
