Description:
I took this photograph as we were sailing back to the ship in one of her tenders. The preceding hour had seen a dramatic occurance on the Queen and we watched it unfold from the quay. An unforecasted storm suddenly blew in from over the mountain directly astern of the ship and with the ship's giant funnel acting as a sail,off she went. At the time the ship was head on to the shore so she was being blown astern out of control. She travelled over half a mile before normal service was resumed.
