PRIDE has discharged her cargo of Scottish Stone chippings.

mv PRIDE has discharged her cargo of stone chippings by lunchtime on Monday and is laying alongside YELLAND QUAY awaiting orders and for some improvement in the weather having cancelled her proposed sailing this afternoon, it being preferable to stay alongside than at anchor at sea.

Her Russian Crew have  prepared the hold for the next cargo, it being dried out with hatch covers cracked open today.

She will sail Wednesday afternoon now, at the earliest, possibly later dependant on her next cargo, and weather conditions.
