  1. Was looking forward to seeing the cruise ship on Sunday 29th April but all I can get is buffering. Why is this is there any way to stop it? It seems to be getting worse. Can you help?

  2. Hi Gill, We have been looking at this issue for a while. It seems to be intermittent, which makes it difficult to diagnose. Our engineer and camera host are looking at the problem, but rather than spoil everyone’s view by taking it offline we decided to battle on to get it resolved as and when we can. Apologies for the issues you’ve been suffering…

  3. I liked it when the sweep in one direction was zoomed in, as it gave better views of the passing ships. Any chance of returning to that, maybe slightly less zoomed than before.

  4. Both Ryde and Cowes cameras are on excellent standard patterns. Hopefully they will stay that way except when interesting things happen, like the arrival of Victoria of Wight into Portsmouth towed by Amber ii on about 6 August.
