ZIM Monaco (Above) sailed from Pier 41 for New York, Shortly after ZIM New York (Below) sailed from Pier 42 for Kingston, Jamaica. Wednesdays typically see both ZIM Stops
Shortly after ZIM New York’s departure, Bahri Hofuf rounded Georges island Outbound from Fairview Cove for Livorno, Italy.
Also Departing last night were NYK Nebula (Fairview Cove for New York), CSL Tacoma (From National Gypsum), and Grandeur of the Seas (Pier 22 for Baltimore)
Reports are that the Bahri Jazan was dragging anchor in the basin and had to reset. The ais tracks seem to show a normal anchor swing but then it appears to move north.
The vessel presumably pulled her anchor, repositioned and re-set it.
Word is the Bahri, the National Shipping Company of Saudi Arabia Has switched terminals and will now be calling at Fairview Cove. Yesterdays Stop of Bahri Janzan was the first.
I Suspected that as ships get larger, the smaller vessels would call at Fairview Cove, to leave space at Halterm on Piers 41/42 but Bahri Typically calls at pier 30
