Claymore at Dover

EX CALMAC FLEET MEMBER CLAYMORE MAKES FOR A TEMPORARY HOME AT DOVER

In June 2006 ex-CalMac veteran Claymore headed south in a surprise charter from her current owners. Pentland Ferries usually employ her in the winter for there service to Orkney from the mainland. This leaves her spare for the summer while another CalMac exile, Iona takes the summer traffic. This year however Claymore has been chartered out to a Farmers Co-op to ferry livestock from Dover to Dunkirk in France. After a inspection by the MCA on the 19/06/06 she made for the sea later that evening for her first run. A few pictures to follow captured this unique event...
