23-02-10 Farewell to the Ice Maiden
[The Ice Maiden leaves Kinlochbervie]A familiar sight on the pontoons for a while now, this lunchtime we bid farewell to the Ice Maiden.

The yacht played an important part in James Hooper's and Rob Gauntlett's successful expedition '180 Degrees' to travel from the geomagnetic North Pole to the magnetic South Pole.

Since first arriving in September 2009 this impressive, steel-hulled yacht has been a regular sight on the pontoon moorings down at the harbour where she has wintered.

She sailed off for oceans new at lunchtime.
