|Star Minerva formerly the Sanko Mineral|
The vessel first arrived off Tor Bay on October 15th last year and has been the subject of much discussion on marine forums. Such was the interest that she departed on May 15th to take up a new mooring near to Falmouth. She was subsequently sold at a sealed bid auction (see previous post).
Graham speculates that the vessel may be returning for an underwater hull inspection and clean after accumulating much marine growth on her keel over the past eleven months.
Her ETA is 1830 UTC – 1930 local time. We'll be keeping a lookout for her here at Maidencombe.
