SIR ROBERT BOND arrives home port

The ferry SIR ROBERT BOND arrived back in her home port of Lewisporte, Newfoundland this morning around 0800hrs after completing the winter ferry service between Corner Brook, Newfoundland and Blanc Sablon, Quebec.

The vessel encountered ice through the Strait of Belle Isle, but as she passed St. Anthony the way cleared (information from the Captain). The icebreaker GEORGE R. PEARKES did assist the APOLLO into St. Barbe, Newfoundland as a ridge made it very difficult to get through.

A refit will start on the Bond very soon which will require dry-docking.

She will be coming to St. John's, I'm not sure when yet.
