After a speedy discharge of her cargo, the bulk carrier YEOMAN BANK left Shieldhall Riverside Berth this afternoon. Two tugs were required to help her turn - in the upper view KINDEACE takes the strain as she begins to pull her stern round while SVITZER MALLAIG waits at her bow. Using the entrance to King George V Dock, ships of this size can be turned quite easily despite the narrowness of the Clyde at this point.

The lower view depicts YEOMAN BANK as she negotiates the main channel past Old Kilpatrick, as she heads down river and to Glensanda to pick up her next cargo.
