mv RUSSA due tomorrow

mv RUSSA is due for midday tomorrow. If she gains on her present ETA she may well berth on tomorrow morning s tide at 1130 hrs. Otherwise she will berth at Yelland Quay on the midnight tide ready to load her cargo of spruce logs for WISMAR in GERMANY on Thursday.

She is slightly longer than most ships that come to the estuary at 95m and is of an older design with three holds and twin screws. She has a shallow loaded draught of some 4m and handles well.
