Ship Shape and Bristol (Channel) Fashion!

No sooner have Waverley’s Western Isles trips finished but our little paddler is on it’s way somewhere else! Somewhere else at the moment is the Bristol Channel where she will spend a couple of weeks entertaining her friends, supporters and the public in general undertaking varied sailings. Her timetable for this area can be found here .

Waverley left the Clyde on Wednesday 2nd June arriving at Swansea in good time to take her first sailing from there to Lundy Island on Saturday 5th. This sailing took her from Swansea to Porthcawl, Ilfracombe, Lundy and back. It was at Portcawl on the outward leg that Chris Jones caught her in good weather loading a healthy number of passengers for the day’s sailing. She left for Ilfracombe with 700+ aboard.

Chris has kindly given the branch permission to post photos taken by him at Portcawl.

Waverley backs away from Portcawl – next stop Ilfracombe.
Thanks to Chris for the pics!!
