Pilots of Rotterdam.

Rede Hoek van Holland, sector pilot Maas, April 22, 2011 7.08 am

In April 2011 I was invited by Herman Broers, Chairman of the Rotterdam Pilots, to sail from Hook of Holland to the Dutch Pilot Station at the North Sea. The Pilot Station is located at sector post Maas about 10 miles southwest of the entrance of the Port of Rotterdam. From the pilot boat to the vessels pilots are transferred by a launch. The small boats are lowered to the water by a david (cranelike device).
