Poll February 2019 Competition : QE2 with a tug
« on: Feb 28, 2019, 05:28 PM »
The theme for the February competition "QE2 with a tug" was chosen by Cunarder Man. 

Thank you to everyone who submitted pictures, which we really appreciate, and we hope that you enjoy choosing and voting for your 3 favourites.

Voting is easy, but you need to be registered as a Forum member and log into the Forum to vote.  Whether or not you have submitted photos, please support those who have participated, by choosing your three favourite ones, noting the details, then tick the relevant box on the poll.  If you have entered photos please do not vote for your own pictures.

To make it easier for you, we have posted the pictures below, however you can also view the photos in the Gallery Album, "QE2 with a tug", where you can see them all at once, in thumbnail form, plus you can view larger versions of the pictures by clicking on the photo to see medium size, and click once more to see them in large size.

You will not see the results of the vote until the poll has closed on 1 April 2019, after all time zones have had a chance to catch up with the voting deadline. 

As always the choice is yours - enjoy!

Voted!  One of the harder ones I think... so much variety, and some epic moments in there.

Fabulous photos, just fabulous.

An excellent selection, just voted!
First sailed on QE2 in August 2003 aged 6 years old. Last sailed on QE2 in July 2008. Last saw the seagoing QE2 in person from the decks of QM2, on QE2's last Transatlantic crossing (Eastbound tandem) in October 2008. Visited QE2 in her new life, in Dubai, in January 2020 and August 2022.
