Racing through a Force 9 gusting Force 10 in the Bay of Biscay (2)11 viewsMy Dad's (James A Hypher's) photo from our October 2004 voyage. Another photo in the series from this Bay of Biscay passage. My Dad was one of only two passengers out on deck at the time, and he was getting soaked in spray from the waves breaking over the bow but at the aft end of Boat Deck about 800 feet aft of the bow! Unfortunately I was busy being badly seasick for about a day and a half in our cabin at the bow but will never forget the motions of QE2 racing through the storm and our cabin creaking!Thomas Hypher

Racing through a Force 9 gusting Force 10 in the Bay of Biscay (1)10 viewsMy 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.Thomas Hypher
Farewell_at_Hook_of_Hooland_2~0.JPG
Departing Rotterdam with one of several water salutes!9 viewsMy Dad's (James A Hypher's) photo from Friday 4th August 2006 (14 years ago today! - day of uploading this photo). We had a wonderful send off from Rotterdam including a choir, but almost girted the tug off our stern with our sheer power and torque even at 72rpm as we left the cruise terminal. My Uncle and Auntie watching from the dockside said the tug master only just recovered and their photos show how dicey it was. Family friend and fellow ship enthusiast Stephen Macey is in the photo.Thomas Hypher

An unexpected surprise and a dream come true16 viewsLate July 2005. A surprise, very rare visit to the bridge with the onboard nursery. QE2 was going nearly 28.5 knots. Vivid memories to last a lifetime and a moment of significant influence in my life.Thomas Hypher

Nasty Surprise, a particularly smokey tug!16 viewsNot sure this tug would pass emissions laws these days ;)
It had just given us a good load of smoke to the bit beneath the bridge which had the large group of us coughing and spluttering a bit. My photo from departing Civitavecchia on Friday 25th July 2008.
