mv African Rook - 14th May 2016

I joined this 12 month old ship in Geelong. She is Indian-crewed, very clean and well maintained and has delicious food! We sailed at 1630h and I disembarked with the pilot outside the heads at 2100h. A lovely sunny and mild Saturday afternoon to be on the bay.

Tugs making fast.

Lifting off the berth - the ship's Captain (L) and the Port Phillip Sea Pilot - Captain Ronnie Jones (R).

Oil tankers at the Shell Refinery.

The tugs heading back into Geelong.

Other shipping at Corio Quay.
