Tall Ship and Hovercraft

Tall Ship and Hovercraft
As the hovercraft was coming into Southsea Hoverport, I was lucky to catch it in the same frame of the Tall Ships Youth Trust Stavros S Niarchos, which was just leaving Portsmouth.

Please view large, on black for best effect.

Stavros came over to the Island after that Keith, turned around just out of my range (I was at the landward end of the Bembridge lifeboat station) and anchored off Seaview , presumably for lunch, it was very choppy out by the Nab Tower. The Brittanny Ferry had gurt goffers right up over the bridge as she left, bound for France down the Nab channel. I went home after that...just so's you'll know. :))

Thank you. I wondered why it hadn't raised the sails............hardly worth the effort for such a short trip.
