Federal Sakura here for wheat

The Federal Sakura should have arrived off the Duluth piers around midnight last night. It will spend the night at anchor and then come in this morning at 6 and go over to the CHS 1 grain terminal in Superior to load wheat for Algeria. Built in 2005, it entered the Duluth harbor for the first time last June (above). It was here again in September last year. This is the first trip this season for the boat and its crew from the Philippines. Like most Fednav boats that come here, it is bright red.
