Marine pilots assist vessels in navigating along coastal and inland waters. In the port of Le Havre, about 50 pilots work alternately, 7 days a week. They have a long maritime history which started with the birth of Port Le Havre. Today, they are gathered under a pilot station and keep up with the technical and market developments.
