No pilot - cruise ship dropped call at Shelburne
The "Balmoral" did not dock at Shelburne Harbour on Sep 17, 2014, as had been anticipated for many month because Shelburne officials were unable to supply a harbour pilot. The captain was concerned about water depth in the new port of call so he wanted a harbour pilot and the town could not easily find a certified pilot for Shelburne. There was only one certified pilot for the harbour and he was unavailable this week. When a certified pilot was unavailable the port was dropped. The "Balmoral" was on a 31-day cruise that began in Southampton, then made its way through the St. Lawrence River and further to New York.

Heavylift ship saved catamaran crew
The "HHL Elbe" en route from Porto Marghera to Kandla spotted two distress flares in the Red Sea. Diverting to intercept the incident developed into a full blown rescue when a small, white rubber dinghy was seen showing a blinking flashlight. The master brought the HHL Elbe alongside the dinghy and held his position whilst a heaving line and buoy were sent out to the dinghy, and and the two persons inside were brought abroad. The couple found turned out to be Stefan Jerkander and his wife, Svetlana Salnikova-Jerkander and fortunately after both were given first aid aboard the heavy lift ship are reportedly well. The pair were forced to take to the dinghy after their catamaran "Cattarina" sank off the Sudanese coast during a voyage from Split to Phuket.
