Algonorth departing Twin Ports

algonorth240627-3-027
The Algonorth will be here for the first time since it arrived here on December 18th, 2005. It has been here 18 times since 1996. In the picture above, it is leaving Duluth in June, 2004. It will be loading grain while here. Two ships owned by Wagenborg Shipping in the Netherlands will be here today. One, the Americaborg, is making its 2nd visit here; the first was just this past August when it loaded spring wheat for Spain. It will do the same thing today. The Dongeborg will be here for the first time despite the fact it is one of the older Wagenborg ships, built in 1999. It will be loading beet pulp pellets for Spain.

The Canadian flagged Algonorth should depart the Twin Ports later today, taking the last grain cargo out of the port this season. The cold weather made the galley on the Algonorth a very popular place yesterday. Chief cook David Dunford of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia (far right), is in charge, ably assisted by porter Bertha Lushman from Port Aux Bas, Newfoundland (middle) and 2nd cook Penny Kukta from Crystal Beach, Ontario (left).
