POMORZE now approx. 35 miles west of Lisbon, making 12.2 knots.

Sticking with ETA early hours Saturday 17th March - Marine Traffic still showing 1000hrs 14th March......

No problem Willie - something I enjoy doing.

POMORZE –
Currently in an area where AIS is not productive – last reported position, nearly four hours ago, is approx. just short of half way up the Portuguese coast (on reflection, that’s not a very accurate position report!).

Around 65 miles north of last reported position, still showing as maintaining 12.2 knots – I’ll stick with “ETA Glasgow early hours 17th March”.

POMORZE currently 60 miles off the north-west tip of Portugal, about to cross the Bay of Biscay.

Present speed is showing as 11.7 knots, so content with forecasted ETA “early hours of Saturday 17th March”.

POMORZE still out of range, nearly 24 hours since last reported position as above.

A wee tester - expecting her to be in the Scilly Isles area around 2000hrs tonight.......... :ugeek:

POMORZE – now 35 miles east of Dublin making 11.7knots, still showing ETA 1000hrs 14th March……

Assuming no hold-ups for tug assistance if required etc I reckon ETA Shieldhall 0500–0600hrs tomorrow.

First high tide she can make will be 12:57 on Saturday afternoon, so if she is going up in that tide expect her at the Cumbrae's for her pilot around 0800 Saturday morning.

Good point John – I had forgotten about the tides and given that POMORZE has a 9.3m draft, sea levels will play a part in her passage.

Currently about 23 miles south of the Belfast-Cairnryan line, estimated ETA Great Cumbrae 0200hrs Saturday.

Thanks on_the_clyde -

Been swotting up on tides – next high tide at Glasgow is 0114hrs Sunday 18th March, next is 1331hrs same day.

So would seem the intention is to get to Shieldhall at/around 1330hrs.....

She may be going up on Monday mornings tide.

Keep an eye on AIS in case she sneaks in before hand

After all your hard work Allan,she went to anchorage at the T.o.B.The good thing is it was a beautiful day and it was easy to get a pic.I've also thrown in one of Nicole C at Bravo6,she's the one that held her back from going upriver in the first place.Cheers Williemac

Yes Willie, great day for the camera – I was planning to get to Renfrew to see her, but it wasn’t to be today.

However, tomorrow looks to be another good sunny day – high tide in Glasgow is 1446hrs (not mentioning the one at 0225hrs – they wouldn’t, would they?) so I’m looking forward to that.

So – another day, POMORZE stays anchored at the Tail o’ The Bank.

Tugs CMS WARRIOR, BRUISER and BATTLER are currently up at KGV Dock, presumably there to assist CEMVALE begin her passage to Belfast, ETA 0700hrs tomorrow.

Perhaps Thursday will be POMORZE’s day……….

Hi Willie – yes, I think you're probably right – after I posted to “SIZE OF….”, spotted your post to “Clyde-built Ships: Photography” – realised there could be a continuation of the tug activity around KGV.

Problem I have with the tugs is that they tend to switch off their AIS about 30 minutes before arrival – we don’t “see” what they are doing (unless, like you, you’re “on the scene”)

All great pics of yours, but liking very much pic 2 of 3 – that flash of light on the port bow really sets it off – nice one sir!

Hi Willie, good pics well done.

Managed to get to Renfrew in time to see her - quite satisfying, having tracked her since 9th March when she was anchored in Gibraltar.

Not enamoured with my pics, seem rather dark - however, here's a few.......

Given my pics’ “darkness” (the darkest), and looking at Willie’s and Colin’s pics, now concluding POMORZE needs a wash-and-brush up, particularly at bow and stern, muy pronto!

PESSADA

See another “biggie” lurking on the horizon (in Brodick Bay actually!) – bulk carrier PESSADA coming in from San Lorenzo in Argentina via Belfast carrying animal feed - 225m x 32.2m, dwt 75,484t.

ETA Glasgow showing as 0700hrs this morning but anchored off Brodick around 0300hrs……

Assume having to wait for POMORZE to depart before she can come upriver?

Looks like POMORZE is about to leave us – destination now set to Ust-Luga in Russia (in the Gulf of Finland, between Estonia and Finland) ETA 2100hrs 4th April.

Three tugs, ANGLEGARTH, AYTON CROSS and SVITZER MILFORD currently heading upriver, no doubt to assist.

Next high tide in Glasgow is 0106hrs Friday, which would fit……….

Allows PESSADA to head upriver tomorrow, ETA Glasgow 1300hrs.

Tugs AYTON CROSS and ANGLEGARTH met her off Gourock around 1030hrs BST, currently approaching Dumbarton.

To see her, ETA Erskine Bridge around 1200hrs BST, Renfrew Ferry about 30 minutes later.

Great pic Seapigeon – Erskine Bridge gives an excellent backdrop.

Unfortunately not able to get down to the river today to see PESSADA leaving us.
The vessel’s track indicates she departed Shieldhall around 1345hrs UTC (1445hrs BST), as accurately indicated by _on_the_clyde_ yesterday.

Interestingly, Marine Traffic record her ATD as 1546hrs UTC – reckon this is a typo…….according to her track, she was passing Dumbarton at this time.

Currently passing the south-east corner of Arran making 13 knots, her destination is, co-incidentally, Ust-Luga in Russia ETA 1500hrs 13th April – same destination as the previous “biggie” at Shieldhall POMORZE – see posts above, around 29th March.

Just noticed our regular visitor YEOMAN BANK passing Brodick on way to Shieldhall from Glensanda. This reminds me of a wonderful trip I had a few ago on MV Rover from Greenock, through the Crinan Canal and on to Oban for a couple of days cruising the sea lochs. This trip also included a visit to the Glensanda Quarry that included a full tour of the site. The trip was in April, the weather was beautiful and the memory of it will stay with me forever.
Best Wishes to All, Iain Nevill

Unfortunately missed FEDERAL RUHR's departure - saw last night her destination had been updated to St Petersburg, had a suspicion it would be in the early hours and sure enough her ATD is listed as 0344hrs.
Ah, well - here's to the next time...........
