    Captain Ross Nicholls is a Brisbane Marine Pilot, AMPI Member and President of the Mission to Seafarers Brisbane. Ross was interviewed recently on ABC radio and gave a great account as to the background and drivers behind what the MTS do and their recent award of Seafarer Centre of the Year!

    Well done to the team at MTS Brisbane, as pilots we can see daily the positive impact a trip to town or even the mere mention of the local Mission to Seafarers can have on a ships crew.

    excerpt below from

    "The Mission to Seafarers Brisbane welcomes an estimated 12,000 seafarers each year and maximises seafarers’ time ashore with its free on-demand bus service. In addition to its wider stakeholder cooperation, the MTS Brisbane works with students at Queensland University of Technology to help them meet the constantly evolving media needs of seafarers"

    SYDNEY pilots recently have personally each committed to donating $1 per day to the Mission to Seafarers Sydney to assist them in the work they do to assist with the well being of the international seafarers that come to the ports of Sydney.

    Our small contribution will assist the Mission to Seafarers Sydney to put fuel in the bus and pay the local road toll fees.

    I am encouraging all pilot services to consider undertaking a similar commitment to the local seafarers centre in their port and we will publish their contribution on the AMPI website. 
    Our challenge is to have all Australian ports or pilot services on the list of supporters.

    Please see the link on our home page for further information and details about what we have achieved to date! Many thanks to Captain Michael Kelly for championing the initiative.
