Anyone on the Thermopylae?

I'll be tracking my wife's car, if you are on it let me know and I will keep tracking it publicly. If it's just hers then I'll stop the posts as not to spam people.

Right now getting ready to leave the UK on it's way to the Americas!

I am on that one as well, with next stop Halifax!

At least I hope so. I am tracking in another thread in the main f36 forum.

Hope we both get our cars soon! The wait is killing me.

** update, car is definitel˙ on the Thermopylae!!! Wallenius just updated the tracking site, which runs 4 days behind.....

Departs from Southampton shortly!

Not to worry. Look at the top line. There are 2 tracking systems. One is land based one is satalite. I have access to both. Here is the update from 2 hours ago. 17kn That's putting the pedal down!

Good news, I figured that Marine Tracker had just gotten out of date. Rather than a sinking.......

I didn't post yesterday as she turned around and went backwards for a while to avoid a storm. Not posting it yet, but should be a 2 day or more delay for those waiting on her.

Fingers crossed for both of us! Looks 40 hours out at this speed. Hopefully they crank her back up to 17 knots.

Approaching North America! Note: My wife's car is off the boat in NYC, so if you are on a later stop let me know and I'll keep tracking it.

Any time. ETA is 20:30 LT not UTC anymore in Halifax. and the NYC drop is the 15th now, not the 13th.

Still sitting offshore Halifax doing 1.5 knots. Looks like they either have no space in port or something is keeping them, weather perhaps, from getting into harbour.


Very frustrating.......!!!!!!!!!!
