Thanks for sharing. Brilliant shot of the stern. At Felixstowe we don't get such great shots of the stern as the deep water berths are the closest to the viewing area before a 90deg turn out of the harbour.

Ok, I don't think daily updates are necessary. People who want to see her arrive in Felixstowe are capable of looking up this information themselves. Also She is due at the pilot station at 1300UTC. Felixstowe is UTC +1 which means shell arrive at 1400 local time.

For the record, here's a clip of OOCL Germany arriving at Felixstowe this afternoon. Looks outstandingly like her sister ship, OOCL Hong Kong . . .  Wink

As the ultra large Maribo Maersk was slightly delayed 3 Svitzer tugs were assisting her onto the berth. Svitzer Deben heads out to be the first tug but as the OOCL Germany was almost in the harbour the plan has changed so the OOCL Germany went starboard side to Berth 8.

The OOCL Germany finally swings and departs Felixstowe after a delay. Two 3212 Svitzer tugs assist the OOCL Germany off the berth and swings to starboard. As they pass the viewpoint the pilot blows the whistle for crowd watching at the viewpoint.
