Bringing another cargo of wind turbine components to the Clyde from Denmark, the cargo ship DEO VOLENTE is seen this afternoon with the Clydeport pilot cutter TOWARD, as she approached the Ashton Buoy. DEO VOLENTE was described on ClydeSights previously, and is a regular caller. It may be of interest to note that the ship that this vessel replaced, and which bore the same name, is also on the Clyde at the moment. CORAL SEA, as she is now named, arrived this morning at around 0700.

Thanks, Gerry. I believe RED JASMINE is due to head upriver sometime on Wednesday afternoon, hopefully before it gets too dark for pics!

My God, if only we knew what lay in store for her and her crew ... chilling reading this post written with happy anticipation.

Thoughts to the friends and families of these sea fairers, especially at this time of year.
