I see they have diverted inshore again close to Lagos in Portugal.

Yes, also the Amber would be too big to assist with the berthing.

Out of interest, where did you get 9 days from? The AIS is still saying 6 Aug into Pompey.

Got that wrong it says 6.8 days

breezer10 1st August 2018 22:43

I would of thought about the 9 August as there has been about 3 days delay so far

As King of the Isle of Wight, I think I'll slap a 25% import tax on the new ferry.

Hee Hee! Do you think Queen Victoria will allow you to do that? :)

Must be a bit sticky on Amber II. Temp's expected to be around 46c, especially in the Pit. I wonder if that's why she slowed down off Sicily for a couple of days and also the last couple of days off the S Portuguese coast. Wouldn't have been much point in standing under a blower would there :)

breezer10 3rd August 2018 18:53

I reckon next thurs / fri into Portsmouth

Dickyboy 3rd August 2018 19:41

Victoria of Wight, towed by Amber II off the South Coast of the Isle of Wight about 25 minutes ago. Nearly home (==D)

Dickyboy 9th August 2018 09:27

Victoria of Wight is currently SE of Ventnor, and heading slowly in a SW direction. Loitering with intent I suppose....
