The self-geared bulk carrier CALYPSO N was seen passing Lunderston Bay as she made her way out to sea after discharging, at Shieldhall, a cargo of salt from Caleta Patache in Chile. The 33,009 tonne deadweight ship, which was built in Japan in 1983 as SEAHOPE, is now owned and operated by Greek interests. In common with most ships of her size, she had called at Belfast to part-discharge before heading to the Clyde.
