DAUNTLESS outbound

The second Type 45 destroyer, and the first launched at Govan, sailed from the BvT yard at Scotstoun this morning, at the start of the first series of sea trials which she will be conducting over the next few months. This picture, sent to ClydeSights by a correspondent, shows DAUNTLESS passing Renfrew accompanied by Clyde Marine's tug BRUISER. BATTLER and SVITZER MALLAIG were also in attendance as the new warship made her way to the Tail of the Bank, where she undertook anchor trials before proceeding further down the Clyde later today.
