STRANGE TRACK OF THE SANKO MINERAL
She then proceeded slowly (about 2 knots) south for 25 miles before veering due north and picking up speed (11 knots +). A few minutes ago she has turned due south again and reduced speed.
Perhaps she is recharging batteries or undergoing routine maintenance after such a prolonged period at anchor.
Quite a few vessels are currently sheltering nearby including two cargo vessels, the Taranto (ARG) and Sormovskiy-3056 (RUS) which are moored 2 kms off to the south of Maidencombe.
