Fehn Courage now due. Welsh Piper arrives.

mv FEHN COURAGE arrived at PORTBURY on the early morning tide.

It was intended that she discharged her cargo of steel coils and stainless rods during today and sail on the afternoon tide today ready for an 0400 arrival tomorrow, but weather delays and a cargo delay means that she will now sail on tomorrow mornings tide and arrive to berth at BIDEFORD on the 1630 hrs tide ready to load her cargo of Ball Clay for Spain.

mv WELSH PIPER had a rough trip down channel especially after the last headland reports her Master.

She berthed at YELLAND QUAY at 1510 hrs but was unable to discharge her very wet  cargo which had sustained seas sweeping across the cargo tank on the last leg of the trip.

She will lay alongside the jetty at Yelland and complete her discharge during the night on the rising tide after the cargo has had time to drain. She will sail at 0500 hrs in the morning.
