Great photo Derek. Best day to leave the country in this conditions and wake up the next day in a much more sunny climate.

This pic shows the beauty of power and the top of British passenger ship design, so much better than her immitation sister ship.

Thanks for your comment pafecru. There is the reverse scenario of course - You go to sleep on a nice steady bed and wake up next morning being thrown around in a Biscay gale! Derek

Yes Derek, know all about it, but those are the things we use to forget.

I wonder what her progess would be. At a high speed she could be over 300 SM south the next morning. (got no idear what the distance is to the Spanish/Portugese coast)

Hans.
