TS Gordon – Vessel Backlog

Due to TS Gordon and the shutdown of inbounds/outbounds, we are experiencing a backlog of inbound vessels.  Just today the Crescent Pilots have handled 23 inbounds, 28 outbounds, and 10 inner harbor shifts.  In order to not delay vessels bound for sea or going direct to berth, we are working with the Bar Pilots to give priority to those vessels with confirmed berth first and will service those vessels going to anchorage as a rested pilot becomes available.  We expect to clear this backlog as soon as possible.
