A US Navy cargo vessel that stopped in Bermuda waters over the weekend is among the ships kept by the US on its ready reserve fleet.

Little detail was available from Bermuda Maritime Operations on the ship, moored at King’s Wharf in Dockyard, because of its military role.

The MV Cape Race yesterday was 21 days into a voyage from Port Harstad, Norway, according to the online site Marine Traffic.

The ship, described as a vehicles carrier, is nearly 650ft long.

It was privately built in 1977, acquired by the US Navy in 1993, and refitted for military use.
