Sue Hickson-Marsay VIEW FULL DIARY

After 20 years in the job, Sue remains the only woman pilot launch coxswain. Her job is to operate a 50ft high-powered launch, braving the volatile waters off Spurn Point to take the Humber pilots out to the ships they guide into port. She goes up to 20 miles out to sea in all weather conditions. It can certainly be daunting and it’s not for the faint-hearted.
