The Ziemia Cieszynska came in early yesterday morning and should depart with durum wheat for Italy later today. After that, the ship will move to a shipyard, probably in Bulgaria, for routine inspection in dry dock. Above left, ship captain Jan Jarosz from Poland watches over the first ship welcoming ceremonies in the pilot house on Tuesday. With him is Scott Hilleren, from Guthrie-Hubner, the local agent for the ship.
