Bow of MSC Napoli arrives at Belfast

Well she's made it! That's the bow section of the MSC Napoli which has been towed from Lyme Bay around Cornwall's south coast then north through the Irish Sea to Belfast. Presently at a holding point just outside Belfast harbour it is hoped that this part of Napoli can be moved into the Harland and Wolff yard later this week.

Good that the weather window has stayed open long enough for the voyage because we are promised autumnal style gales for the next couple of days. So dire has been the weather forecast that the Fastnet yacht race has been put back by I think about a day - no doubt they are recalling the 1979 event when a storm took a number of lives.
