Southampton Departure Aboard Braemar 13 July 2008
Jul 13, 2008

We departed on time at 17:00 with Svitzer Madeleine assisting, backing into the River Itchen from the QEII Terminal.
With friends waving from Hythe Marina we sent off down the Water to The Solent, seeing Trinity House's Bouy/Lighthouse vessel Patricia, being followed by Grand Princess & in the distance Norwegian Jade.
A mad jet skier was crossing back & forth across our wake before being chased off by a coastguard vessel. A few other ships passed & Nab Tower.
