Yarmouth comes in from anchor

The Yarmouth has been at anchor off the Duluth piers since Saturday. It was set to come into port around 6 am this morning. It will be loading wheat for Mexico. Built in 1985, it is 601 feet long. It is owned by a Norwegian company and in fact was once called the Federal Oslo. If you look closely, you can see the old name imprinted on the hull underneath the current name. It is bright red. Above, people on the piers greeted the ship when it came into port on August 10, 2001.

Yarmouth loads wheat

The Yarmouth (now the San Teodoro) is currently loading wheat in Superior. The ship was built in 1985 and has been here 7 times since 1996. It came here once as the Federal Oslo in 2000, and since then as the Yarmouth. It will likely depart Duluth sometime this afternoon, taking the cargo to Tunisia, a country in north Africa, with port cities on the Mediterranean Sea. The Mesabi Miner was loading coal for Presque Isle, Michigan and has probably departed the port, leaving the coal dock open for the Paul R. Tregurtha, expected in this afternoon.
