Noticed tonight on Marine Traffic, PS WAVERLEY, having left Helensburgh and having achieved only around 6 knots by about a mile or so out, appears to have almost reversed course but eventually moved east of her original trajectory then proceeded toward Greenock.

Anyone any ideas of the reason?

Hi Allan

There is very little water left around Helensburgh pier now. Low water was 1829 and very big tides at the moment and the Waverley returned to Helensburgh at 1845 so she will have headed in and put only her paddlebox alongside the corner of the pier with the bow pointing into the big car park, and then gone astern a good distance away from the pier before allowing her to swing and the start to make headway.

PS WAVERLEY – Friday night cruise seems to have been cut short – got as far as Dumbarton Rock, then appears to have reversed course, currently just passing KG5 dock,apparently heading back to Science Centre?

Waverley was covered from a long way out by a quadcopter or drone or whatever you want to call them. This model cost £3,500 according to it's operator who handled it very professionally even though there was quite a strong wind blowing.

Waverley today at Helensburgh on a rather dull and overcast day. She seemed to have a slight problem after leaving as she stood off the pier, blew off steam and dropped the hook.
