taken from ports&ships....."winds gusted to 75 knots at one stage and caused some problems for at least two vessels in port. One was the FPSO CITADE DE VITORIA on the Eastern Mole in an exposed position which required three tugs to assist in holding the vessel in position on her berth.

The FPSO, which fortunately has its own engine is in port to take supplies and bunkers and attend to a few minor items before heading for Brazil. The giant vessel arrived from West Africa earlier this week.

Cape Town also has a couple of oil rigs in port which required some close attention but fortunately there was no drama involving either of them. Another ship that did however need some attention was the container vessel NORTHERN DIVINITY which was on berth 603 and also required assistance from the fury of the winds."..........
