BBC Russia at anchor in harbor

A couple weeks ago, the Beluga Constitution was at the inner anchorage on a beautiful summer evening. It attracted a crowd of boats trying to get a closer look. Ships in the anchorage are usually positioned with their side facing downtown Duluth and Skyline Drive, as the BBC Russia was last night (above). It sat there basking in the sun while waiting for the Sandviken to complete loading grain at the CHS terminal in Superior. The Sandviken finished around 6 pm last night and departed Duluth, leaving the berth open for the BBC Russia. Photo taken on August 17, 2007.

BBC Russia here for wheat

The BBC Russia came into port Saturday afternoon to load spring wheat for England. Despite loading at two terminals, the ship should be ready to depart Duluth for England late this afternoon. This ship follows other ships coming from the same company this year: the BBC Venezuela, BBC Germany, BBC France, BBC Shanghai, BBC England, and BBC Ontario.
