Welcome Shirase!


Freo Today. 26 November 2022. Such a perfect day. Perhaps the south westerly is a little fresh. But lovely just the same. And the Port was ahum this morning as the Japanese Navy Icebreaker Shirase and her crew arrived to a wonderful welcome! See our main story today with all Shirase’s vital statistics and a great gallery of photographs of her arrival. Thanks to our Shipping Correspondent Jean Hudson for her great pic of the Icebreaker steaming past North Mole.
