Sport Of The Kings

first_img Share Olympian McLain Ward rode into first place in the Hampton Classic’s $300,000 Grand Prix on Sunday, September 2, in Bridgehampton. Independent/Peggy Spellman Hoey Olympian McLain Ward rode into first place in the Hampton Classic’s $300,000 Grand Prix on Sunday, September 2, in Bridgehampton.Independent/Peggy Spellman HoeyUnited States Olympic rider McLain Ward took the Hampton Classic’s top honor on Sunday, September 2, jumping into first place for the seventh time — making history — during the $300,000 Grand Prix presented by Douglas Elliman.Ward, a native of Brewster, NY, completed the course, which was designed by Michel Vaillancourt, in 39.32 seconds atop HH Gigi’s Girl, a 10-year-old gray mare owned by Double H Farm. Shane Sweetnam, one of several Irish riders to compete in the event, took second place with a time of 41.24 seconds atop Main Road. Lucy Davis came in third place atop Caracho with a time of 42.47 seconds.Ward, who has ridden to two gold medals and one silver in four Olympics, was the Longines Federation Equestre Internationale World Cup Champion in 2017. His victory in the Grand Prix was not entirely easy though, as he faced a challenging course that not many riders took without penalties. He stumbled on it himself, as did Sweetnam. Ward said he was aware Sweetnam, who has been dubbed part of the “Irish invasion” at the Classic, was a threat and noted he is a “very fast rider who was in great form” the whole week.“Gigi is a great developing young horse, but with not so much experience. She loses a little time in the air, but she is very brave and I thought maybe I could risk it back up on that vertical a bit. It was one of those things. If it shows up, you’re a hero. And every once in a while, it doesn’t show up and the results are different, but it worked out today,” he said.Sweetnam said he saw Ward’s stumble.“He stumbled and it worked out for him. It gave him the gap that he wanted. He took the chance, and like he said, sometimes it works for you and that makes the difference,” he said.Davis, a bronze medalist at the 2014 FEI World Equestrian Games and silver medalist at the 2016 Olympics, said she was happy for her performance in the competition, noting that she has been working with Caracho since he was seven years old. “I always thought he was going to be very special and just started moving him up to this level, and he is proving to be even more special. I am so proud of him and I am even more excited for the future,” she said.All three riders received Longines watches. It was the third timepiece for Sweetnam, who was awarded the $30,000 Longines Rider Challenge for the second year in a row. He received additional watches for taking first in Friday’s $75,000 Douglas Elliman Grand Prix Qualifier presented by Longines and Saturday’s $70,000 Longines Cup, prompting jokes at the press conference that he will never have an excuse to be late again.Both Ward and Sweetnam will be riding in the World Equestrian Games next week in Mill Spring, NC, for the U.S. and Ireland, respectively. When asked about the prospect of competing, Ward said, “I think that we have a strong team. There are always questions and doubts,” he added, noting, “You always want to stay focused and it will go your way.”peggy@indyeastend.comlast_img read more

EUROGATE’s Earnings Up Despite Lower Volumes

first_imgBremen-based terminal operator group EUROGATE saw a 2 percent decrease in its total container volumes in 2015 as it handled 14.5 million TEUs during the year. The company said that the total handling volume for the German seaports in 2015 also declined by 2 percent, while container handling volumes at the German EUROGATE locations grew faster than the market. In Bremerhaven, Wilhelmshaven and Hamburg, EUROGATE handled 8.2 million TEUs in 2015, representing a slight rise of 1.5 percent than in 2014.Taken together, the North Range ports recorded a decline of 1.6 percent in the reference period.Despite difficult market conditions, EUROGATE’s net operating profit jumped by 13.4 percent to EUR 73.5 million (USD 83.3 million), compared to the previous year’s EUR 64.9 million (USD 73.6 million) operating profit.EUROGATE revenue was up by 4.5 percent and stood at EUR 591.3 million, while operating profit grew by 19 percent to EUR 91.1 million.“Despite this positive result we cannot hide the fact that the market conditions in our industry have become more difficult. We are currently confronted by a mature market characterised by highly intense competition. The shipping lines are responding to this with ever larger container ships with transport capacities of more than 18,000 TEUs. For us as terminal operators the challenges lie in coping with the resulting peak handling periods,” Emanuel Schiffer, Chairman of the EUROGATE Group Management Board, said.The number of container ships of more than 10,000 TEUs calling at the German EUROGATE container terminals in Bremerhaven, Wilhelmshaven and Hamburg in 2015 grew by almost 35 percent overall to 618 ports of call. One third of these ships (201 in total) already has a transport capacity of more than 18,000 TEUs.Some 19 percent of these ships docked at Wilhelmshaven. Germany’s only deep-water container terminal, EUROGATE Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven, benefited from the trend towards ever larger vessels and increased its handling figure to 426,751 TEUs, which was 536.2 percent higher than in the previous year. EUROGATE Container Terminal Hamburg recorded a moderate increase of 0.5 percent to 2.3 million TEUs.The Italian container terminals showed a positive development overall, although the decline in container handling volumes at the MCT Medcenter Container Terminal in Gioia Tauro, Calabria, clouded the overall balance slightly. The Italian container terminals handled 4.8 million TEUs in 2015, which was 5.5 percent down on 2014.Image Courtesy: EUROGATElast_img read more

Russian trek for Germany’s V. Alexander

first_imgThe consignment was made up of heavy compressor stations, the largest of which weighed 39 tons (35.4 tonnes).The recipient was a Russian military base and therefore V. Alexander had to provide highly stringent shipment documentation including: block Customs clearance; extremely precise pre-notices about the arrival of trucks; as well as vehicle driver names and identification documents.Adding to the difficulty of the shipment, parts of the 3,500 km route were subject to extreme winter weather conditions.www.valexander-bremen.dewww.cargoequipmentexperts.comlast_img read more
