Racing through a Force 9 gusting Force 10 in the Bay of Biscay (1)
My Dad's (James A Hypher's) photo from our October 2004 voyage. QE2 had left Southampton 7 hours late due to a very late arrival caused by the same stormy weather. We would go on to arrive in Vigo, Spain (our first port of call) on time after a day and a half of bombing along in the upper 20s of knots in what was originally scheduled to be two whole sea days. Captain McNaught definitely opened up the throttles.
