A massed flotilla of PLA vessels from harbour launches to salvage craft helped bid farewell to outgoing PLA CEO, Richard Everitt. Richard spent his last day with the PLA on a pilotage trip onboard Hamburg Süd’s Santa Rita


bound for London Container Terminal. In Gravesend Reach the PLA vessels ran alongside and Svitzer tugs fired their water cannon.

Happy retirement, Richard.

Well done Chiswick RNLI, who helped rescue Portuguese water dog Hashi, who badly injured herself when she fell more than five metres to the foreshore in her excitement at the sight of a flock of ducks.

When the lifeboat arrived two crew were put ashore at Barn Elms Reach to assess the situation. After being checked by a vet, Hashi was recovered from the foreshore in the lifeboat’s basket stretcher, as access at the scene was difficult.

RNLI Lifeboat Helmsman, Glen Munroe, said: “Being able to reach the injured dog from the water made recovery much easier, and all our


crew are pleased that they helped ensure a good outcome for Hashi.”
