Branch Pilot Rudy Cann has been tasked with the job of bringing the Norwegian Breakaway into Bermuda for her inaugural visit on Wednesday.

The current Warden of the Pilots has been in New York getting to grips with manoeuvring the mega-ship.

And next week Pilot Cann, pictured, will be charged with the responsibility of getting the huge vessel through the reefs and along the narrow channels before landing her alongside at Dockyard.

Pilot Cann, whose grandfather was a Branch Pilot, told the Bermuda Sun: “As Pilot Warden I usually deal with any new vessel coming into Bermuda.

“It’s going to be a great honour bring the ship in on Wednesday.”
