Olympic Miracle comes to Duluth

The Greek owned and flagged Olympic Miracle will be here today for the 6th time since 1996. It is seen above arriving in Duluth in 1999. The last visit was in April, 2006. It is one of 5 owned by a trust set up by Aristotle Onassis for the benefit of his children. Management is located in Athens, although several sources list Monaco ownership. With such an impressive background, the ship is here to load bentonite, not the most pleasant cargo to load, especially in the rain. It should depart on Sunday for Venezuela.
