I was wondering what on earth the Victory was towing as I zoomed in on the camera. The two hulks, Nic and Breeze were alongside each other.
Graham has also contacted me with good information and links. He says that 'MTS Victory is owned by Marine & Towage Services which is the Falmouth based company that as well as running a substantial fleet of tugs and work boats also own and run the shipping agency and pilotage operation at Brixham. I see that the tug’s AIS destination has now changed to Las Palmas (presumably for bunkers) so I would guess she will be sailing shortly – Brixham to Las Palmas is 1447 nautical miles.'
Graham is spot on with his info - the MTS Victory left her mooring off Tor Bay mid morning and is proceeding south at around 5 knots.
