About to depart from Civitavecchia22 viewsMy Dad's (James A. Hypher's) photo from the evening of Tuesday 26th July 2005.

My Dad almost missed the ship just after taking this photo despite the gangway security team saying he had plenty of time to take photos. His name was called on the PA system and me and my Mum went to the Purser's Office to tell them where he was. My Dad sprinted back to the ship with his DSLR camera on the tripod as soon as he saw and heard the gangways being brought aboard getting back onboard via the last gangway.

Where the dream started14 viewsMy first bridge visit, with the nursery, in late July 2005. This is where the dream of going to sea as a deck officer started. I was 8 years old at the time. We were speeding through a warm, calm, and very sunny Bay of Biscay at nearly 28.5 knots en-route back to Southampton after a Mediterranean cruise. QE2's headwind was immense as I was almost blown over when peaking over the leading edge of the port bridge wing whilst standing on the compass repeater platform.Thomas Hypher

Dramatic change of wind direction26 viewsMy Dad's (James A. Hypher's) photo taken from Calshot Spit on Saturday 25th June 2005 as we watched QE2 depart Southampton with my Grandad onboard, on her Trafalgar 200 cruise.

QE2's funnel smoke went from trailing aft and slightly off to starboard, to swinging around to trailing ahead out of the funnel and to starboard, before then trailing almost vertically from the funnel in the middle of the famous "reverse S" manoeuvre past Cowes.
