Spirit of Tasmania

Captured from a video by Rob Walton this evening as the Spirit of Tasmania heads out from its new home in Geelong, passing our town with Melbourne across the bay in the background. There are two ships, one in the evening and one in the morning - sailing time 9 to 11 hours.
The iconic red-and-white ships we know today as Spirit of Tasmania I and II were constructed in Finland in 1998 and operated for four years between Greece and Italy. These two monohull vessels replaced the original MV Spirit of Tasmania, making their dual maiden voyages across Bass Strait on 1 September, 2002.
