A QE2 VIEWING CRUISE FROM GOUROCK ON THE LAST VISIT TO CLYDE
The QE2 will make her final trip up the Clyde next month.
If the weather is clear she should be visible from Arran as she sails past.
Caledonian MacBrayne has organised two special cruises to see the grand old lady of the sea when she berths at Greenock on Sunday October 5.
The first cruise will depart from Gourock at 10am on board MV Saturn which will join the flotilla escorting the world famous liner as she arrives in the upper Clyde.
The second cruise during the afternoon will depart from Gourock at 3pm to view the QE2 from the water when she is berthed at Greenock Container Terminal. Each cruise is expected to take up to two-and-a-half hours.
Lawrie Sinclair, managing director of CalMac said: ‘This is a wonderful opportunity to be part of a piece of history and I am sure it will be a memorable experience. There is no better place to view the QE2 than from the water so I am sure it will be a very popular excursion.’
The QE2 was built at John Brown’s shipyard on Clydebank and had her maiden voyage in 1969.
