Hi Pekka,

She will set sail to Canada in ballast, destination there is still unknown! In Canada the Spliethoff crew will go off and the Canadian crew will go on board, in winter time she will become Lootsgracht again with a Spliethoff crew!

So, did you get anything new info about her next destination? Here it looks SAMPO will depart tomorrow evening, hope to catch her before I leave this position for few days...

Hi Pekka,

Will go onboard today (again) and figure out what there gonna do!

Any idea if she is getting a load in Amsterdam or will she for example sail bound for Canada now? Btw, SAMPO should depart on Wednesday...
