Staff Shocked By Teenagers Swimming In Harbour

St Mary's Harbour

St Mary’s Harbour staff say they were stunned yesterday morning when they saw teenagers trying to swim across the harbour.

A number of boatmen shouted warnings at the youngsters who decided to try and reach the harbour steps by swimming from their boat at one of the busiest times of the day, just after 11am.

One was paddling with a duffle bag across his back.

Some of the youngsters chose to swim and were accompanied by their friends who decided to use their inflatable.

Harbourmaster Dale Clark said he was disappointed that they seemed indifferent after receiving a warning.

Mike Shave says he’s never known anyone to try and swim across a busy working harbour in his 12 years of service.
