TDW - do you have the web site for the Sydney Harbor cam on top of the Harbor bridge? Can't find it and wanted to see the scenery with the QM2 in port.

TO be quite honest I didn't know such a thing existed, so no I don't have that link. If I find it I'll let you know. If you find it let me know please.

Oh, and by the way, too late. QM2 departed Sydney 2300 last evening.

tdw- Correct me if I'm wrong, but the QE2 and QM2 don't make it down-under very often. If memory serves, the QE2 once made it to WA. When the tugs went to turn her around in Freemantle harbour she was damn near touching both sides!

This is the first time for the QM2 into Sydney, that's why there was so much fuss and bother plus of course the fact that they were both in together. The QE2 usually comes in once a year I think. When they spun the QM2 near the Opera House there was not much space at each end.

(Ahem, well thanks to the SMH chopper anyway)

Jesus Gui, now you've ruined the whole thing. No else had noticed. Anyway, it's not as bad as that wally who posted a pic of a Yankee Automobile yesterday. Anyway, to redress the situation, check this out. We were tied up next to her in Newcastle (Australia) last month. Her names Athena, in the pic she's doing 15 knots in 20 knots of wind. Bit small and slow for my liking but what can you do ?
