Not such an early start this morning, but early enough for a Sunday morning.
Again met with a cold biting wind - seems to be the pattern for the weekend.
Expectations were that most of the vessels would depart and this proved to be the case as those at the 'tail of the bank' off Greenock left during the night and very early morning.
The ships at Faslane started to leave around 09:00 and I managed to get a few before there was a lull in traffic.
Decided to head across to the South side of the Clyde as I believed that French frigate 'FS FREMM Aquitaine' would leave around lunch time.
Popped to Braehead and caught her there - then down to Greenock for some different angles as she departed.
