SPINNAKER TOWER new look



The "EMIRATES SPINNAKER TOWER" as it is known today will be ten years old this coming October, I have seen it being built and during these last ten years I have seen the tower countless times sailing on cruise ferries, it was very strange last week to see it painted with the new "livery", the tower is now Blue, White and Gold, it was to be painted red, colour of the new sponsors, the Airline giant EMIRATES, strong opposition from locals and the council prevented this to happen, it would be too much to take on board to see the tower painted the colours of rival football neighbours Southampton Football Club.
