Kormano arrives, Vasiliy Shukshin awaits higher tides, tide cuts.

mv KORMANO arrived from Kinsale. Excellent ship very manoevrable, with Flap rudder and Russian crew. Master speaks excellent English. Bideford has two max size ships in port. She will likely sail on the am tide on Friday. Despite normal air pressure, the tide cut by 30cms or so. Probably due to the fresh northerly winds. Loading will commence at 0600 hrs tomorrow.
