Waverley at Swanage

On this first Sunday in September 2023, Waverley called at Swanage at 12.30pm on her way to view the Bournemouth Air Festival and meet up with the steamship Shieldhall having set off from Southampton Docks at 9.30am and made a call on the way at Yarmouth at 10.45am.

Here are some pics of this happy event:

Full Astern

Lots of froth from the paddle wheels

Gangways out

All ashore that’s going ashore

Off we go again

Full astern

Waverley is offering sailings on the South Coast up to Wednesday September 20th. Do buy tickets and come aboard if you can.

These trips on Waverley follow in the wake of the PS Embassy which made some of her last calls at Swanage Pier fifty seven years ago on the first Sunday in September 1966.
