The bulk carrier YOSEMITE arrived at the Tail o' the Bank on Friday afternoon from Belfast, where like most of the ships bringing in animal feedstuffs, she had discharged part of her cargo before heading for the Clyde. Once weather conditions had moderated a little, YOSEMITE was able to move to Shieldhall on Saturday evening. Delivered from Japanese builders in 1985, this 178.22 metre long ship has carried four names previously, becoming YOSEMITE in April 2006. She has a deadweight of 28,019 tonnes and is now operated by the Eastwind Group of Greece.
