Moorings team at work in Braye harbour

A team of five divers has arrived from the UK to check and maintain the moorings in Braye Harbour in time to welcome visiting pleasure boats from neighbouring islands in the Bailiwick bubble.

The team from Marine and Civil Solutions of Exeter arrived on Wednesday each with a negative Covid-19 test and were met by the Border Agency to confirm details of their self-isolation while on Alderney.

They are following strict protocols to keep separate from harbour staff and the community by living in rented accommodation with Covid tests every other day. Provisions are delivered to their doorstep during their time on the island.
Deputy Harbour Master Nigel Shaw, who is working with them on the project, is himself self-isolating away from his family and will continue to do so even if the moorings work is completed within the scheduled 14 days.

The annual service contract includes a rolling programme of buoy replacement.
