Shipping Report for Churchill, Manitoba
for the 2000 navigation season

The Ship Photograph Archives     Latest photographs

Churchill, Manitoba is located on on the southwestern shores of Canada's Hudson Bay. It is one of the few commercial shipping ports on Hudson Bay and due to it's northerly location it's shipping season is very short. Federal Rhine was the first ship this year and it ended up being the earliest arrival of any commercial vessel at the port on July 11th.

By the middle of October though the ice was beginning to choke the port of Churchill. When the time Fjordstone was ready to depart on November 9th, the harbour was full of shove ice. It was not until the 11th that a wind shift to the south relieved the ice against the ship and finally allowed her to depart. The day she left the wind shifted back to the north and the ice closed in for the winter.

These are the ships that traded into Churchill, Manitoba, Canada for the year 2000
