During April, there were two new detentions of foreign flagged vessels in a UK port, four vessels remained under detention from previous months. A total of three vessels remain under detention at the end of April. In response to one of the recommendations of Lord Donaldson’s inquiry into the prevention of pollution from merchant shipping, and in compliance with the EU Directive on Port State Control (2009/16/EC as amended), the Maritime and Coastguard agency (MCA) publishes details of the foreign flagged vessels detained in UK ports each month. 10101 – Pilot ladders and hoist/pilot transfer arrangements Missing No The UK is part of a regional agreement on port state control known as the Paris Memorandum of Understanding on Port State Control (Paris MOU) and information on all ships that are inspected is held centrally in an electronic database known as THETIS. This allows the ships with a high risk rating and poor detention records to be targeted for future inspection.

(Photo by Tom Macht, www.photofinishphotos.com)BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (Oct. 13-14) – Racing took a backseat to remembering a much loved member of the Bakersfield Speedway family.Bailey Schweitzer, daughter of promoter Scott Schweitzer, was one of the victims of the Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting in Las Vegas. She was remembered in pre-race ceremonies before both nights of the Budweiser Nationals, with a balloon launch held before racing began on Saturday.“This has been a race I’ve always wanted to win and especially being able to do it this year means a lot to me,” said Friday night IMCA Modified winner Cody Laney. “There were a lot of people here and a lot of work went into this weekend. A lot of people came together.”Laney’s 30-lap win on Friday and Collen Winebarger’s 40-lap victory on Saturday both paid $1,500 and were Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot qualifying events.Robby Sawyer ran up front early on Friday and was in and out of the lead before Laney got there to stay on the 18th lap. After moving to the lower line, Laney went on to take the win ahead of Sawyer, Ethan Dotson, Brad Pounds and Bobby Hogge IV.Winebarger’s 14-hour tow from Corbett, Ore., was rewarded the next night with a start to finish run in the lead. Laney threatened to sweep the weekend but came up just short following a restart with two laps to go.“I’d put the competition here up against anybody,” he said. “You’ve got to bring your ‘A’ game because there are so many good cars and we had a pretty good car all weekend.”Darrell Hughes II, Dotson and Danny Lauer rounded out the top five.Nick Spainhoward also scored a $1,500 feature win after leading the last three times around the track in Saturday’s Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod 30-lapper.Also the Budweiser Nationals winner in 2015, Spainhoward led Jason Nation, Austin Kiefer, Wayne Dotson and Garrett Jernagan across the stripe. Kiefer had led the first 27 laps.Oct. 13 Feature ResultsModifieds – 1. Cody Laney; 2. Robby Sawyer; 3. Ethan Dotson; 4. Brad Pounds; 5. Bobby Hogge IV; 6. Collen Winebarger; 7. Alex Stanford; 8.
