First Call at Girvan in 2013

Waverley made her first call at Girvan on Monday 15th July having sailed from Glasgow via Largs and Ayr to offer her usual Clyde Monday cruise round Ailsa Craig. The following few pictures show her approaching the harbour, berthing and then alongside.

In total she is scheduled to make 4 calls at Girvan as she is only able to enter the harbour when the tide allows. In fact Girvan is the only pier with any significant tidal restriction that she visits regularly on the Clyde.
