Photographer:jadran [View profile]Title:BREMER ANNAAdded:Jan 26, 2017
Captured:January 25, 2017IMO:9265665Hits:1,266
Location:Rijeka, Croatia
Photo Category: Storm Pictures
The small general cargo ship BREMER ANNA seen on the anchorage outside premises of shipyard Viktor Lenac, Rijeka, Croatia;
25 January 2017
( photo captured at 9:52 a.m., temperature 0C, NE wind 62 knots on this location)

This photo is specially posted for the purpose to well illustrate a winter stormy day at Rijeka (never had an opportunity before to photo document such an occasion: Ship in stormy weather at Rijeka);
- the ship was anchored outside VLS premises ( 2 miles East from port of Rijeka);
- on the location of port of Rijeka (sheltered area), the wind was blowing with a much less force of 25 knots;
- on this particular anchorage spot, outside VLS premises, the gusts of wind were of significantly much-much higher force (as can be recognized from the photo);
- the ship was covered with *water mist* saturated in the air, that was generated by the fierce wind (therefore the photo was not possible to be captured in top quality for what please receive my sincere apology);
- please notice on this photo, how the ship is heeling to its port side due to very strong gusts of wind;
- the ship had later moved from this location to a more sheltered and more calm location in front of port of Rijeka for a more convenient anchorage of the ship;

Thank you, Geir and Husni , for your nice & very informative comments!
Kind regards /Jadran

Just for additional information:
Only 2 days prior to the capture date of this photo, on the bridge to Island of Krk (on air distance 10 km East from Rijeka) was officially measured wind force of 199 km/hour !!
Actually, Rijeka is known as an area with often very strong winds... the famous Bura (the "bora").

It has been quite windy here in Pattaya as well for a couple of days now but with 30C it's not so bad going outside after all :-)

Just 1 (one) anchor !! because the ship was all the time "circling" and also dragging the anchor,, the Captain later made a smart decision and moved the ship to a more sheltered area, i.e. to a let's say "calm" anchorage in front of port of Rijeka .....
shippingman on Jan 26, 2017 12:37 (2 years ago)
No dropped two anchors for safety?
