Its usually nice to see a pair of them in together because of the symmetry that they present when viewed from some angles.
They are also capable of coming alongside without using a tug, and watching Eddystone unberth herself was a really short exercise because she was out of there like a shot inspite of the wind that was creating havoc.
I was finally able to see Hartland Point sailing, and I have really enjoyed seeing these sisters come and go. They are almost fixtures and Southampton seems empty without at least one of them. The other two ships (Longstone and Beachy Head) have not been in Southampton during my time here, but I believe they are on a long term charter in the Baltic Sea.
