The Spirit of Gosport sails close by Spinnaker Tower taking a slightly longer route to Gosport:




A nice looking old style wooden vessel, not sure what it is though:

Seatrade her Breiz klipper just arrived in Scheveningen from IJmuiden
here some pictures









the coastgeard vessel Zeearend came in also








the 6th of July the SCH-123 Zeeland will return from the wharf in Hansweert after a drydocking period of 8months I hope the other 2 hektrawlers are still here then (and they probably will because they have fished there quotum for this seasen in august they will probably will be allowed to fish again), the SCH-123 Zeeland will stay here for 1 month

Sunseeker, all right! I'd chop off my arm so one could be put in SSE. :doh:

in the background to the right, is that a Predator 108?

Tomorrow, if the weather won't be that bad as expected in the morning, it will be the turn for the MS Grand Princess! This time only with her 'skywalker' removed from the stern, as shown on this picture.




@TFM, I hope that Sunseeker is yours, is it?  ;)

No, that's my Sunseeker. I docked in Poole like he said just for some maintenance repairs (I was caught in a gun show run amok on the way over, it was covered with bullet holes, that's why those guys in the green vests are walking on it). Currently I'm en route to Pago Pago, then to San Francisco, then through the Panama Canal so I can make a visit at Barbados. :doh:
