RUSSA berths late on tide at YELLAND.

RUSSA berthed at 1240 hrs today after discharging her cargo of timber (sawn) at WARRENPOINT  from the BALTIC ready to load logs - for the BALTIC!

Excellent ship - steers well even with stopped engines (twin screw) and with just a 4 metre loaded draught (with 2200 tonnes cargo).
