SUMMER OF OPPORTUNITY 2021

We open our "new season" of monthly events on September 11th ~ with local author & speaker ~ Kevin Patience ... 

Cruise ship callers ... Dorset ... "Summer plus" 2021

Ship enthusiasts, including members of ~Ships~Dorset~ and WSS Dorset Branch, do not limit their interests  to passenger ships. Indeed we encourage members and local photographers to value the variety of tankers, bulk carriers, cargo ships and ferries that visit the Port of Poole, Portland Port UK and our Dorset coastline. Having said that the events of 2020 have attracted many cruise ships to our shores, giving us unexpected sightings and many temporary residents. As 2021 unfolds there has been a sudden surge of British Isles cruises including callers we have not hosted at Dorset ports before. We have enjoyed numerous callers over summer 2021 and now we are into "Summer plus"  we have an updated listing from Portland Port UK ... see # below ...
