Cap Victor - quick visit

The tanker Cap Victor, bound for Quebec City, made a short stopover in Halifax mostly during the hours of darkness.  The Greek flag ship is a regular caller at the Ultramar refinery in the St-Romuald neighbourhood of Lévis, and so its visit here was a rare one. Needless to say it did not take bunkers.

Not only did it arrive at night, but it sailed amid banks of sea smoke brought on by the -15C air temperatures in Halifax. Adding to this was the position of the sun when it did sail.
Hence my only picture - the ship is outbound off Sandwich Point and almost out of view. 
Built in 2007 by Samsung Shipbuilding + Heavy Industry in Geoje, South Korea, the ship measures 81,234 gross tons and 158,880 deadweight tonnes. It is owned and operated by Euronav.
