|A missive from the RN Ops section reminds us that the Joint Warrior (091) exercise will be taking place in May.|
Running from 11 to 21 May 2009, JW091 will be utilising the live firing range at Cape Wrath together with exercises by land forces, warships, submarines, and aircraft in the offshore and coastal waters around our corner of the UK.
Details of operations and advice to fishermen and other members of the public can be found in the briefing document that has also been added to the Documents section of the website.
For those of you wondering about our visit from HMS Penzance this weekend, I can tell you that at this very moment (lunchtime Thursday) she is passing through the Sound of Mull, en route and on schedule.
Also in the area is HMS Enterprise which came through the Kyle of Lochalsh earlier and is about to enter the Minch, destination unknown.
There is also the possibility that HMS Sutherland will be visiting us soon. More details as I get them.
Remember that you can follow the movements of vessels in the Minch via our Minch Shipping page, so long as they are transmitting AIS data.
