New manager and new code of practise for busy Oban Bay

THE NEW Oban Bay harbour manager, veteran seaman Paul Jennings, has only been in the job two weeks, but is already making positive changes to the busy port.

Employed on behalf of the community by Caledonian MacBrayne, Paul is now the point of contact for all matters having to do with the bay from the entrance to the Sound of Kerrera, and he will head up the task of establishing Oban Bay as a statutory harbour authority.

‘Since they changed the ferry timetable, the number of ferries running went from 8,000 to 13,000,’ Paul said. ‘Plus another 4,500 vessels are using the pier and south quay. The only harbour in the UK that has more traffic than that is Dover, and it’s all operating through this small bit of water.’
