Nice to see a Harwich launch as it takes me back over 45 years. In my younger days the launches normally only went as far as the Shelf Bouy (I think it was called) which was not far from the old Felixstowe Dock to put Pilots on or take them off ships using the Orwell and Ipswich or the Stour and Mistley. Any ideas please have far out these launches operate now with the huge ships using the port?
Many thanks

Peter,
I think these days they can go as far out as the sunk light, but the really big ships take their pilots off Brixham or off the north Foreland ie Margate but the normal boarding area is just off the cork sand..

The normal boarding station for most ships using Harwich/Felixstowe, and also some for the Thames and Medway, is three miles east of the Sunk light vessel, in normal weather.

Brixham (or Cherbourg) is usually for licensed North Sea pilots, not the local harbour pilots. However, overcarried pilots from Harwich have occasionally used Brixham in poor sea conditions.
