Oriana (II) & Aurora
Yet another winter storm was hitting the UK on the 3rd January 2014.  It was only Oriana in port, heading to the Canary Islands, beginning with Madeira.  She was scheduled for 4.30pm but was over half an hour late when she let go of her lines, backing out of Ocean Terminal with the help of tugs, Ferriby and Surrey.
Meanwhile, Aurora had been due to arrive on the 4th but was early, scheduled to dock alongside Mayflower Terminal for 11.45am.  She had help up Southampton Water from tugs Bentley and Sarah and was all fast by 12.20am.
