SS Australis at Sea

The movie clip was taken from the Sitmar Liner "Fairsky" in July 1975 by my brother Rod.

It was originally taken with 8mm colour film and transferred to digital in Mpeg format.

File size is around 800kb and is about 5 seconds long.

If you set your media player to repeat you should get a fairly good idea of what she looked like at sea.

Australis was sailing to Auckland and Fairsky was heading for Sydney and shows Australis at it's closest approach.

The ships were about midway across the Tasman Sea.
