Seen from Lyle Hill while tying alongside Greenock's Ocean Terminal, QUEEN ELIZABETH 2 basks in the sun as sighteseers pass by in of the Clyde Marine Services' small passenger boats.

The tugs assemble shortly before QE2's departure time, together with VITAL SPARK and a wide variety of other small craft, all wanting to witness the sailing of the great liner.

The tugs take the strain and begin to gently pull QUEEN ELIZABETH 2 off the berth. Once clear, she was turned in the river and commenced her voyage to her next port, Liverpool, on this 40th Anniversary Cruise.
