Good afternoon Dyfan, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you very much, to Global for providing a sterling service throuout our Port visit to Gibraltar./ Kind Regards.
Dear sirs, this message is to deeply thank you all for the brilliant effort leading to the vessel safe sailing away overnight with its grab on board. Your focusing on customer needs and the timely cooperative attitude demonstrated by your company in this event is highly appreciated. Best Regards
Once again on behalf of the Captain and crew, we are truly grateful for not just the fact that you responded and helped but with the efficient manner in which you did so. In our business it is always nice to acquire a new friend and business acquanintance. And rest assured that should the need arise you will be the first that we reach out too. Take care.
Thanks for your outstanding service.
I would like to extend my gratitude to you and your team for supporting HMS Ambush during our period alongside in Gibraltar. The services that you have provided us during this time have been of great value, allowing our maintenance to be conducted to the highest standard during a busy programme. Your help will allow us to achieve success in our future commitments. The period alongside also allowed some time for our ship's company to relax, and without your assistance this would not have been possible.
Although generally benefitting from a warm, Mediterranean climate, because of Gibraltar’s location jutting into the Straits at the southern tip of Europe facing North Africa, the meeting place of the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, Gibraltar’s weather can become variable and can be subject to extremes, with occasional very heavy rainfall in the winter and very strong gusts of wind.
The dominant features of the weather in Gibraltar are the easterly winds (Levanter) and the westerly winds (Poniente). The easterly winds can bring humid conditions and sea fog is not uncommon when these easterly air currents are prevalent. The westerly winds bring drier air, cool in the winter, and hot and dry in the summer.
Gibraltar’s exposed location can mean its weather is subject to rapid changes and local monitoring and forecasting of weather conditions is an essential activity for shipping agents.
