The small tanker WHITCHAMPION, owned and operated by Whitaker Tankers Ltd, is normally based on the Mersey but paid a visit to Garelochhead on Sunday, arriving during the afternoon from Liverpool. WHITCHAMPION was built in 2003 in Turkey, and has a deadweight of 4,450 tonnes, with an overall length of 85 metres. She has been seen previously on the Clyde - back in February 2009 she bunkered a larger vessel at No 6 anchorage.
