POLE STAR outbound

About to pass the No 1 Buoy, marking the entrance to the River Clyde off Greenock Esplanade, the navaids tender POLE STAR was seen this afternoon as she sailed from the Clyde. While PHAROS is in drydock, the ship sharing agreement between the various UK lighthouse authorities is implemented and the Irish navaids ship GRANUAILLE is due to work out of Oban for a few days. To take her place, POLE STAR is heading for Dun Laoghaire, near Dublin, operating base of the Commissioners of Irish Lights.
