Two sister ships from Greece pass each other in Duluth

Olympic Miracle passes the Olympic Melody in the Duluth harbor
The Olympic Melody departed Duluth just as her sister ship Olympic Miracle was arriving. Both loaded grain at CHS 1 in Superior so the Miracle was indeed taking over for the Melody

After a few days at anchor off the Duluth piers, the Olympic Melody came into port on Tuesday evening. It has been loading wheat for Italy. The ship is one of 5 owned by a trust set up by Aristotle Onassis for the benefit of his children. Mr. Onassis, now deceased, was the famous Greek shipping magnate more famous perhaps for marrying Jackie Kennedy. The Olympic Melody has visited the Twin Ports about once a year since 1996. Above, it is departing Duluth in July, 2000.
