 A maritime meander around St.Helier’s vibrant and busy port, which includes a visit to the Lifeboat Station. Built because of the growth in seaborne trade by local merchant traders, most of the harbour was built in the nineteenth century and designed for wooden sailing boats. Today fast catamarans skim the waters between St.Helier and the south coast of England, they dock in the new Elizabeth Harbour and the island’s essentials come by truck on the ferry.Hear about the coming of paddle steamers that transported our first tourists, and the SS Vega that brought salvation to starving islanders during the Occupation. See the Florence and the Jesse: sailing boats given by Jesse Boot, island resident and founder of Boots the Chemist.
