I hope someone from QHM (Queen's Harbour Master) reads this.
The new aircraft carrier was scheduled to depart Portsmouth this morning. The planned departure was listed on the QHM web site, along with the Notice to Mariners closing the entrance/departure channel during the appropriate time. So, off I went this morning and got myself in prime position for some good photos. It was only after a 1 hour drive and a fiver of my hard earned cash (parking charge), I learned from a passer by that the ship had actually sailed yesterday! I checked the QHM web site before leaving hom and there had been no change.
I know QHM will argue that timings can be subject to change etc and that the web site is only updated during gentlemans' hours but I am still extremely annoyed. I presume the Notice to Mariners must have been updated between yesterday and this morning so, if that was so, how did other users of the QHM web site get that info ahead of time.
