RV Yantar (Янтарь) arrives at the Port of Willemstad, Netherlands Antilles

I can take no credit for these spectacular pictures (CLICK THEM!), all credit goes to Cees Bustraan, who is an avid Ship Spotter for shipspotting.com with over 10,000 pictures to his credit (WOW!).  I dropped him a line; he'd been monitoring the RV Yantar's progress towards Willemstad, and took pictures of it as in came in to port today, just in the nick of time since it was almost a full day ahead of schedule according to the port authority.  Original resolution versions are available at ShipSpotting.com, and you can almost make out the faces of the crew coming into harbour, snapping pictures with their cameras - I bet they're happy to see land!

RV Yantar is currently docked at the West Wharf in Willemstad, Curaçao (12.109974, -68.933039)

My previous post about the RV Yantar (Янтарь), an Auxiliary General Oceanographic Research AGOR (that may have some AGI-like hobbies), along with some background info, can be found here.
