Standing at QE2's stern as an 8 year old81 viewsMy Dad's (James A. Hypher's) photo from the morning of Saturday 23rd October 2004 in Vigo, Spain. We had just come through a Force 9 gusting Force 10 in the Bay of Biscay and made up a 7 hour delay from leaving Southampton. I was glad to not be seasick every 2 minutes after a day and half of being so!Thomas Hypher

Racing through a Force 9 gusting Force 10 in the Bay of Biscay (2)43 viewsMy Dad's (James A Hypher's) photo from our October 2004 voyage. Another photo in the series from this Bay of Biscay passage. My Dad was one of only two passengers out on deck at the time, and he was getting soaked in spray from the waves breaking over the bow but at the aft end of Boat Deck about 800 feet aft of the bow! Unfortunately I was busy being badly seasick for about a day and a half in our cabin at the bow but will never forget the motions of QE2 racing through the storm and our cabin creaking!Thomas Hypher

Racing through a Force 9 gusting Force 10 in the Bay of Biscay (1)34 viewsMy Dad's (James A Hypher's) photo from our October 2004 voyage. QE2 had left Southampton 7 hours late due to a very late arrival caused by the same stormy weather. We would go on to arrive in Vigo, Spain (our first port of call) on time after a day and a half of bombing along in the upper 20s of knots in what was originally scheduled to be two whole sea days. Captain McNaught definitely opened up the throttles.Thomas Hypher

So sleek!69 viewsMy Dad's (James Hypher's) photo shared with permission. Taken on the morning of 23rd October 2004 in Vigo, Spain. We had just arrived on time after leaving Southampton 6/7 hours late due to bad weather and passing through a Force 9 gusting Force 10 in the Bay of Biscay at around 28 to 29 knots. QE2 was a mere couple of weeks from exceeding Aquitania's record for the longest serving Cunard Ocean Liner - she didn't look old or perform like an old ship!Thomas Hypher
