The Maltese flagged Persenk loaded a cargo of sugar in Mexico and brought it up to the St. Lawrence Seaway, stopping at Hamilton, Ontario to discharge the sugar before sailing to the Twin Ports. After sitting at anchor for a couple days, it came in on Tuesday afternoon (above) to load durum wheat for Algeria. The ship was built in 1998 and is owned and operated by Navigation Maritime Bulgare located in Varna, Bulgaria, a port on the Black Sea. The crew is also from Bulgaria. They should depart for Algeria this evening or possibly Thursday.
