New Acting Harbour Masters appointed
From Port of Jersey
10th August 2021
Two new Acting Harbour Masters, Fleur Moisan and Phil Le Neveu were sworn in by Jersey’s Royal Court last week.
Fleur Moisan first started with Ports of Jersey as a work experience student when she was just 15-years old. After gaining a BSC in Navigation and Maritime Science she then worked at sea on superyachts before joining Jersey Coastguard as a Watch Officer in 2017. Following a recent internal promotion, she will now be moving to the Marine Services Team to help run the commercial side of the operation and will join the Coastguard Duty Officer roster. Well-known in Jersey as a competitive sailor, Fleur is hoping to train as a marine pilot in the future.
An experienced hydrographic surveyor, Phil Le Neveu joined Ports of Jersey in 2019 and has been working in the Marine Services Team. Following an internal promotion, he is now moving into Maritime Operations in the role of Marine Quality Manager, although he will continue to assist in surveying work when required. Following appropriate training, Phil will also join the Coastguard Duty Officer roster.
Jersey’s Harbour Master, Captain Bill Sadler, comments, “I am delighted to see local talent be recognised and wish both Fleur and Phil every deserved success in their new roles within our maritime sector.”
Both Fleur and Phil will join the Acting Harbour Master roster following the completion of their training. This important role is two-fold. It delegates the powers of the Harbour Master enabling them to uphold the local maritime laws and regulations. The role also includes the Search Mission Coordinator (SMC) function for Jersey Coastguard, providing co-ordination and oversight of Maritime Search and Rescue incidents within Jersey’s Territorial Waters.
