She is back called the Orcades Viking again I think. There are photos on this website somewhere with her painted blue right enough, and tied up in Las Palmas.

Hi Craig
Yes you are right, the vessel only had the name "Omega" from 2003-05....and yes I have also seen a pic from Las Palmas last october with the present name "Orcades Viking".

If you look up at top of the hill on the port side of her bow, that is where the Faroese flattened the top of the mountain to build a National Stadium in Toftir to play the first International Football matches after being accepted as UEFA members.My house was just at the bottom of the road and I wish I had stayed another three months as Scotland played the Faroes there in their first qualifying group. I would have loved to see the looks on the Scottish players faces the first time they kicked the ball over the cliff.
