Piloting the ships into port

The work of the pilots, marine and control tower staff who guide ships into Southampton. The pilots guide large ships into Southampton, assisted by the marine staff on patrol and those in the control tower, are at the heart of making the port work smoothly. They are challenged by the danger of ships going aground and by dealing with leisure craft which frequently get in the way of the safest route into Southampton.
