On the evening of Saturday 14 June P.S. Waverley canted on her return from her daytime re-launch cruise and took on a fresh load of passengers for an evening sail to the Tail O'the Bank. This gave an opportunity to experience the paddler by night for the first time after completing her rebuild.

As darkness fell the ship's lights shone more brightly. Note the illuminated foremast.
The mainmast carried a light string as well
The River Clyde began to twinkle
On our arrival at Anderston Quay a fantastic firework display, sponsored by Glasgow City Council, lit up the sky
