Due to her second call at Ayr coinciding with low water Captain O’Brian took the precaution of using one of the rescue boats to take the lines ashore. Recent soundings in the harbour suggest that there is now insufficient water for the steamer to run astern up the river at low tide while attempting to berth at the Compass Pier. In all Sunday was a perfect day to appreciate all that Waverley offers, indeed what other vessel could you sail on to experience the Firth of Clyde at its very best? In other words folks get aboard and support Waverley as often as you can in this crucial year.
