Goodbye, Pogoria!

STS Pogoria, port of Livorno
I happened to be in port when the “Pogoria” was leaving. They didn't need a tug: three members of the crew unberthed the ship on their own with the help of a rubber boat.

Then they sped along the moving ship to go back on board.

In a few seconds the “Pogoria” was already recovering her service boat, sailing away.
