K1 Britannia’s latest journey – Wednesday October 30
The Isle of Wight had been lashed by the fiercest storm since the hurricane of 1987 over Sunday and Monday, but the calm after the storm brought smooth waters and sunshine this morning.
The tow company Hitchen Marine rang and said there was a weather window so they were coming straight across to tow K1 Britannia to Hythe.
K1 was made ready for the tow and hitched to their tug. The sun poured down as she left but unfortunately on the way over there was a downpour, which meant that quite a few of the people helping got very wet. But once she was moored at her new berth in Hythe the sun came out – a good omen we hope.
