Duty harbour master Adam Rose is stepping up to fill the harbour master role which has been vacant since July.

Born and educated in Alderney, Mr Rose has worked at the harbour since 2005 and brings experience of many aspects of harbour operations into his new position.

‘It’s my aim to provide a robust and efficient service which will continue to serve the island in a safe and reliable manner,’ said Mr Rose.

Boyd Kelly, chairman of the General Services Committee, said that along with deputy harbour master, Nigel Shaw, Mr Rose had taken on additional responsibilities and worked tirelessly during the six months without a harbour master.

‘They have overseen a most welcome return to form for the harbour following the difficulties thrown up by the pandemic and have worked long hours with commendable enthusiasm to make 2022 a record-breaking season for visiting vessels,’ he said.

The appointment process was assisted by Guernsey’s harbour master, Captain David Barker.

Mr Rose’s former role of duty harbour master will be filled early next year.
