Queen Mary 2

BBC anounced last night that the new liner Queen Mary 2 currently being built in St Naz is due in Southampton on Boxing Day, presumably chosen for max publicity when everyone has had enough Christmas Pudding.

Feel for those involved in the recent accident though.

Couldn't agree more Pete. Throws a huge shadow over the whole thing. Very tragic.

That accident was terrible, and the news archives make very grim reading.

Anyway, the planning for the arrival can be followed here: Cunard Website
and here: Southampton Port Information although it looks like she's due into her berth at 06:30

Did you go out, Riva?

We would definitely have been out but we're away for Xmas down in deep darkest Devon.

Rumour has it that the jackeens were snoozing off a big christmas dinner on their sofa. We would have whipped them into action if we had been around

Hi Riva,

Glad you had a good time. Wasn't happy with the conditions out there
for a recovery in the late afternoon at Lee. Did you recover OK at lee with your boat or Ski can be a nightmare with a south westerly.

Paul

Not that there's anything wrong with keeping the boat in the front garden!

took the ski, to recover @ lee just run up beach try to get out of the water by a couple of feet so as not to get buffatted, then just reverse on the shingle (4wd) ski or rib its easy and safe no bashing the trailer , great thing keel bands p.s. wasnt haveing a downer on front garden boats, unless its a 20 shetland that they keep hens in.
