Plymouth - Wiron 6

Recommended Posts

A first for me last night - the evening arrival (20:10) of the Armorique into Plymouth was delayed due to a trawler having broken down on the berth. 
 

As the breakwater approached the Armorique did a 180’ turn and headed back out to sea. After about 20 minutes we were advised that we were being held due to heavy port congestion (after I had initially enquired at reception and was told it was due to submarine traffic!) but a glance at Marine Traffic revealed a trawler was on the berth, with an MOD tug in attendance. An apologetic SMS received from BF also confirmed this. A further hour past before the trawler was moved - and only then did we head into the harbour, arriving an hour late. Still, it meant I got to watch all of Strictly! :) 
 

Bizarrely it appears that the trawler is back on the berth again today - fingers crossed it’s moved in good time for the Pont.

We saw the offending trawler today as we came in on Pont Aven - they have parked it to the side. But trawlers in Millbay at all? That's a new one on me, but she looked a bit big for getting through the lock into the Barbican fish market. Maybe the locals will know more.

She has come in a few times in the last few years. They had a pair of HUGE spanish trawlers last year, with factories onboard which boxed the catch alongside and straight onto waiting trucks in Millbay!
