      Finnmarken is due in Las Palmas tomorrow according to earlier reports. ETA 1100 hrs.
      But somebody must be playing games with the AIS since it now states ETA Cape Town 12.02.2012.
      She is still heading NNE off the coast of South West Sahara though.

      PS> Finnmarken has change her destination back to Las Palmas. ETA tomorrow at 1100 hrs.

        She's getting close. Looks like she should arrive at Las Palmas some time between 06:00 and 07:00 WET/GMT.

          Finnmarken has moored at Muella Grande, Las Palmas at 0945 hrs. today.
          ETD 1700 hrs. today. I have not found any webcam, but I believe others may be able to?

          PS> I notice that Christian Radich and Lord Nelson is also in port.

            From MarineTraffic.com:
            2012-01-17 09:32 ARRIVAL LAS PALMAS FINNMARKEN

            She slowed right down after I posted before. Presumably they didn't want to arrive earlier than the port was ready to receive.

              Nothing on the AIS from Finnmarken since 1040 yesterday. Ombugge said ETD was planned for 1700 yesterday - so is she staying longer (or travelling incognito!)?

              Found two webcams that should have had a good view, neither were working!

              Has anyone got any more info?
              Cheers,

              Mark.

                She appeared to have sailed early, or have switched off the AIS.
                She should show up again off Cape Finisterri in a couple of days.

                    Well spotted Odd Richard. ETA 24th Jan, 1600 UTC.

                    If I had any degree of commitment, I'd be working out when she's passing Dover and plan a day trip, but I'm not sure that would go down too well with Mrs PoloUK - especially if it's the middle of the night!!

                      Just passing the Brest peninsular - about 13 knots still - possibly a little bumpy judging by the shipping forecast.
                      Cheers,

                          As they go through the Traffic Separation zone, the Channel looks like a motorway!

                          If you got your timing right, would be a good day to be doing Newhaven - Dieppe, Dover - Calais / Dunkerque or Ramsgate - Ostende ferry crossings. Because of the 'drive on the right' rule, won't be able to see this beauty from the UK mainland today. Shame.

                              She's back on the AIS again - going through the North Sea oil fields. Still no change on ETA, 13.3 knots.

                                I wonder, will she go back to Ølen and berth up next to the two little white boats that we saw on webcam for some 8 weeks at the end of 2009 before sailing south?
