kate rich Nordlys arrived in the port of Fowey Oct 12th, just 4 days post the annual Sail Cargo Alliance meeting, with 14 crates of wine and mixed goods for Xisto wines, olive oil for New Dawn Traders and the Feral Trade olive oil, 3x bottles of which were pre-sold quayside to Bessie Ellen and Nordlys ships cooks. Due to short notice of ship's confirmed arrival Anton from Xisto mustered 4 trucks to transport up to Bristol on the Monday 16th, coinciding exactly with the rare occurrence of nearby passing Hurricane Ophelia, triggering the excitement of 7m swells in locally and causing the Nordlys to be tugged out to safety of the open sea far from the unloading pontoons. A cargo tender (small transport/service boat) was rustled together with the addition of plywood to provide high-sided protection and cargo eventually ferried ashore to a nearby jetty and unloaded at a camping ground, from where the trucks were able to load. Trasported by road to Anton's lockup in St Werberghs, Bristol, and delivered to Feral Trade in 2x carloads on the friday & saturday of that week.
