Condor Ferries Captains undertake new pilotage training on the tug
Two future Condor Ferries Captains will be amongst the first to take a new-style port of Jersey pilotage exam tested exclusively 'afloat', on board the Duke of Normandy tug.
Captain Steve Crowe and Mr Mark Thompson began their three week training course earlier this month.
Both mariners are currently second in command with Condor ships, but their local pilotage training will ensure that they will be able to bring Condor Ferries into the port, without the need for a Port of Jersey pilot to come onboard to help.

Condor Ferries have already received a number of nominations for the award but there is still time to submit a nomination in person, by email or post to help recognise the work of the Island's many unsung heroes or organisations.
Senator Alan Breckon, the Chairman of the Jersey Consumer Council, is among this year's judges for the award, and said that the award was a great way to champion those people who volunteered to help others less fortunate than themselves.
