Pilots of Gdynia

In Gdynia we had a warm welcome by Capt. Ryszard Wrobel, director of the Gdynia Pilot Organization, officially called Przedsiebiorstwo Uslug Morskich ‘Unipil’. We first got a tour through the pilot station. He had arranged that I could sail with pilot Kryzysztof Knybas with the cargo ship ‘Wichita Belle’, length 172 m and breadth 26 m With the pilot tender we were brought to the cargo ship. The pilot trip was a short trip but interesting and started with a 180 degrees turn in the port of Gdynia. We followed the buoys to the Baltic sea. The area with the old cranes was very impressive. Before we returned to the pilot station we were invited to visit the port of Gdynia. More pictures of Pilots of Gdynia
