In yesterday's post on the YM Upsurgence I mistakenly stated that the ship used no stern escort tug when leaving Fairview Cove. In fact the ship did take three tugs -two flanking, and one astern.
I did not take the time to check if there was a tug on the stern. No excuse, but it was raining and I didn't want to get too wet!
Thanks to a reader, I am reminded that it is a Halifax harbour regulation that ships more than 330m long require three escort tugs.
I do welcome corrections.
