The last time this tanker visited the Clyde, it was pouring with rain - today it was blowing a gale and pouring with rain! ALFA GERMANIA has just spent a number of days lying at anchor off Irvine and this morning finally sailed up the firth to Finnart. Dating from 1998, she is one of a fleet of eight 'Aframax' tankers owned by the Finnish operator Lundqvist and she is manned by Finnish and Croatian officers, with an Indonesian crew. Barely visible through the spray and rain is CalMac's CORUISK awaiting a berth at Gourock on a diverted sailing from Rothesay.
