Still waters

Lpg tanker Arago heads out of the upper Otago harbour in glassy conditions on Wednesday afternoon.

The ship arrived from New Plymouth on Tuesday afternoon and after leaving Dunedin was heading to Lyttelton.

The ship sails under a Panamanian flag but is operated by Taranaki-based Cape Shipping Ltd.

Last year, the ship was refused entry into Lyttelton because of a suspected case of Covid-19 on board. It was later identified as a “historic case”.
