A beautiful day in Rochester welcomed the Scot Navigator and her guests, which was a great opportunity for us to get people together and celebrate. The day consisted of a traditional christening ceremony, followed by a chance for the guests to mingle and inspect the vessel.

The Crew of the Vessel with her Godmother

 

Fortunately for the superstitious crew, the christening went without a hitch. Glenda, the ship’s godmother, spoke to the crowd before cutting the ribbon and everyone toasted the vessel.

Thanks to everyone who joined us on Friday, it was a great day and we appreciate your support. From everyone at Scotline and beyond, we wish the Scot Navigator many years of happy trading! Contact Intrada Chartering if you have a (photogenic) cargo for the new vessel.

Details about the Scot Navigator can be found here.

Scotline Grand Prix 2017

People

Scotline hosted the 21st Scotline grand Prix on Tuesday 4th July, 2017.

Once again, everyone descended this week on Bayford Meadows Kart circuit in Sittingbourne, for the 21st annual Scotline Grand Prix. On Tuesday 4th July we got together the great & good of the timber industry and UK short sea to see who could complete the most laps of the kart circuit in a 3-hour endurance race.

 

The pace was a little bit slower than in previous years!

It was a perfect day for racing with warm weather and a bit of cloud. All of the regulars were present along with a couple of new faces, it promised to be an exciting race. From the green flag on, there were 2 fore runners – Tysers and TM Global – that left the pack behind and so it stayed for the remainder of the race.

With the eventual winners getting away, there were still some great battles on the track with everybody finding other drivers of similar standards to tussle with. Eventually though, it just came down to which of the 2 teams would come out victorious….

Congratulations to TM Global for eventually coming out on top, with Tysers in a close second, and a good time had by all. We hope to see you all again next year for another close and enjoyable race.

Please see lap times for all teams here:

Scotline Tennis – May 2017

People

And the Scotline Tennis 2017 winner is….!

On Wednesday May 10th Scotline once again convened on Brentwood Hard Courts to compete for the prestigious Scotline tennis trophy.

Unlike last year which had sun, rain and snow, it was a nice clear day with ideal tennis – playing conditions. 24 players entered into a mixed doubles tournament with a round robin and the top 8 going into semis then a final.

The standard this year was good with a number of people showing their competitive sides. It seems there are a couple of budding Andy Murrays out there in the timber industry, with a few semi-professionals claiming to only play “once in a while”.

After the round robins and the semi finals (and some strawberries and cream), the final was contested between Julie Shotton & Magnus Lofgren vs Cindy Crancher & Pehr Eriksson.

A tough set of tennis later and the eventual winners were decided. The 2017 runners up were Cindy Crancher and Pehr Eriksson:

Leaving the eventual winners as Julie Shotton and (ex professional!) Magnus Lofgren. Congratulations to Julie and Magnus.

Scotline hopes everyone who took part enjoyed the day and we hope to see you all there again next time.

Scot Navigator launch 1

Scot Navigator Launched

Ships

Scotline are pleased to announce the launch of the Scot Navigator from the GS Yard B.V. in Groningen. She will become the 10th vessel in the Scotline fleet.

On Wednesday the 22nd February 2017 the Scot Navigator was launched at the GS Yard B.V. in Groningen. She has a modern, efficient design which makes her the ideal acquisition for our expanding fleet, whilst being built to comply with all the latest legislation including provisions for ballast water treatment.

Scot Navigator Launch 3

The Scot Navigator will have a length of 88 metres, a beam of 13.75 metres and a maximum sailing draught of 4.90 metres. This will give her a timber-fitted capacity of about 5,500 cubic metres. She will be powered by a Caterpillar engine and will be sailing under the British flag like the rest of the Scotline fleet.

We expect her to be fully operational and delivered in May 2017.

Scot Explorer Experiences Rough Weather in Buckie

Ships

Our Scot Explorer was stuck in Buckie last week because of the storms that hit the UK. In the extremely rough weather she couldn’t work, even in the shelter of the harbour.

The chief engineer, Radek, managed to take a video of the conditions in Buckie:

 

Distillery Tanks

She was in Buckie to load an interesting project cargo of whiskey distillery tanks. The destination for these is the Jameson’s Old Midleton Distillery in Cork.

Scot Venture in Ice

Ships

A couple of short videos sent to us from our Scot Venture this week shows her navigating her way through the ice whilst loading in Riga.

As more of the Baltic ports become ice locked, the ice breakers are working hard to keep the port of Riga open.

Thanks to Iggy on board for sending us the videos.

 

UPDATE!

It turns out that it’s not just Riga that’s experiencing bad weather at the moment. The pictures below was sent today showing the conditions in Buckie.

Scotline Welcomes the Scot Leader

Ships

Scotline are pleased to welcome the Scot Leader to our fleet.

Scotline have recently added a new lady to our fleet having taken on the Scot Leader, ex-Odertal. She is similar to our Scot Trader at around 4500 DWT. She’ll be flying under the British Flag.

What the Leader brings to our fleet is not only a second vessel with a deadweight around 4500 tonnes, but equally importantly is her high cubics, holding 6,360 cubic metres in her single hold. For a full specification have a look at her details here. A full pdf can also be seen there showing more details and the particulars of her hold.

She is just completing her dry docking this week and will be ready for service soon, looking stunning in the Scotline livery and ready to work. Thanks must go to our superintendents Mark and John and everyone else involved for getting her up to such a high standard so quickly.
