The Cosco Shipping Galaxy alongside Felixstowe Berth 9 cargo operations come to an end with the cranes beginning to boom up. Mooring gang in attendance and the tugs begin to go to station. The pilot requests for both to make fast on the centre lead fore and aft. Svitzer Kent makes fast centre lead aft while the Svitzer Sky makes fast centre lead forward. The Sky comes under the bow to pick up the heaving line but the crew slackens the head lines before the last crane had boomed up. Sky manages to get the heaving line so they tie their gear onto the line to be winched onboard onto the bollard. One of the crew members signals to the Sky to say they were fast forward. Kent makes fast aft once a couple of lines were let go.
The pilot gives the order to single up to springs. Once VTS had given clearance to depart, the springs were released and Kent builds to a 50% pull away from the quay, Sky forward builds to 50% aswell before the Kent increases to full power. After a while, the pilot gets the Sky to go all easy.
As the Galaxy moves away from the berth box, the pilot runs the engine astern to back her further into the channel. The pilot begins to use the bow thrusters and then gets the Sky to build to a full pull to get the bow onto a southerly heading. Kent drops in astern as the pilot runs the engine ahead, Sky eases and comes in to let go from forward.
Once the Sky had been released they move around to the port quarter to escort around them around the corner if the Galaxy got into difficulty. Safely around the Corner both tugs were released.

Video Cosco Shipping Universe
Found on YouTube. Created by "The Rotterdam Pilot".
As the COVID-19 pandemy restricts our daily lives more and more, Shipping Lines, Ports, Linesmen, Tugs an Pilots will never stop. We are all part in a big chain that keeps moving cargoes anytime, worldwide. Today we may wear face masks, we do not shake hands anymore, and we stay at a safe distance from each other onboard. But we keep them ships moving. This is a short video about the outgoing COSCO SHIPPING UNIVERSE, a 400 meter long ULCS, from Yangtzekanaal, Euromax Terminal to sea.
She has a full China crew. Let’s not forget the sacrifice these ship’s crews are making, since they are no longer allowed ashore or even be relieved at the end of their contract due to the Corona-crisis. They are the real heroes of the logistic chain.

L/S of the ships and boats in a busy harbour. C/U shot of a nice looking old ship. Camera pans to a couple of little ships - tugs. M/S of one of the tugs "Flying Kestrel" with its Captain Collingwood observing. M/S of "Queen Elizabeth" - the largest passenger liner in the world. "Seven tugs go into action when "Queen Elizabeth" leaves Southampton" - tells a voiceover.
M/S of Captain Collingwood giving instructions on the bridge of "Flying Kestrel". M/S of the tug approaching "Queen Elizabeth". Low angle M/S of the front of "Queen Elizabeth" - one can read the name and a flag is flying from the prow. A rope has been thrown from "Queen Elizabeth" to the tug and men catch it.
Succession of shots demonstrating how difficult and physically hard is to lead as large a ship as "Queen Elizabeth" from the harbour. Several close up shots of the faces of sailors show some extremely young faces, probably between 13 and 15 years of age. Job definitely looks too hard for boys as young as those.
After a job well done, men can relax. C/U shot of a man drying his sweaty face with a handkerchief. Another man drinks from a white mug (probably tea). L/S of "Queen Elizabeth" sailing away.
However, shots of the people finishing the job and relaxing look staged, sailors definitely wear make-up and are most probably typecast for the film.
There are some beautiful shots of "Queen Elizabeth" as it leaves the harbour - magnificent.
