Cassiopeia sails

mv CASSIOPEIA sails at 2050 hrs last evening with 2480 tonnes in two grades of Ball Clay for Spain. She went to anchor off Clovelly to await improving weather in the Bay of Biscay.

Excellent steering ship and the critical draught was planned and achieved well (the Chief Officer having broken sleep in the process) She came afloat with no trimming required - even keel and no list. The TDC crane driver having follwed the Mates instructions well.
