Launch scrubbed for today

1. Ready to go - but no go.

2. Earlier this morning, all was in readiness for when the tide came in.

Launch of the new supplier Atlantic Condor was scrubbed at the last minute today, due to high winds. The chocks were out, four tugs were in attendance, but it was just not safe to pull the trigger and potentially damage the ship if she slewed off course.

Launches are unpredictable at best, and potentially dangerous, so no chances were taken.

Tomorrow afternoon about 2 to 3 pm is the next scheduled time, but again it is dependant on wind and weather.
