Supposed to be tomorrow.she is at anchor off Ventnor I think

The AIS is still saying today. However, there is nothing on the movements page for QHM to confirm that, so maybe tomorrow it will be.

I expect local tugs will bring her in. I understand she'll be berthed on the Wightlink Hulk initially.

albertd 9th August 2018 16:28

Could be. The QHM page for tomorrow doesn't make it clear to me.

Edit: Yes, I see that Guardsman and Warrior are local tugs currently tied up close to PIP.

Amber II & Victoria of Wight making the final approach to the Nab Tower then Portsmouth at around 11 hrs.

Victoria of Wight is now showing on AIS. First time I have seen that since the sea trials in Turkey.

Dickyboy 10th August 2018 11:25

Yeah, I noticed that. I see she's turned and heading SE. Heavy weather in the harbour mouth at the mo, heavy rain & high winds. Can be seen here... http://www.camsecure.co.uk/portsmout...ur_webcam.html

albertd 10th August 2018 11:35

Nicely visible here, though a bit murky.

Edit: Make that "very murky"!

The Ryde camera is better quality, but much further away. Looks like she's made her move now, and is heading in.

Nearly made it to her new home, just a mile or so to go :)

albertd 10th August 2018 11:57

Oh dear! Even the view on the harbour mouth camera is getting a bit obscured by the weather.

The first of thousands of passages through the harbour mouth. Rotten picture I'm afraid.

Amber II. Must have been on the edge weatherwise for bringing her in. Very windy and wet.

albertd 10th August 2018 12:32

I don't think it was too windy. Sure, the flag was billowing well, but the hovercraft are still running. I snapped a few photos as well, though much like yours. Once the weather clears a bit, she should be fairly clear on the Gosport ferry terminal camera.

Yes, it was very inconsiderate of that blob. :)

It was the wind I was thinking of, she has a lot of top hamper, and shallow draught, and the harbour mouth can act like a funnel. Especially from the SE, which fortunately wasn't the wind direction at the time. She did stand off for an half an hour or so before she committed to the move. I wouldn't have liked to have seen her do a Vanguard (Jester)
