“Heidmar was an early and consistent supporter of Ridgebury so we are particularly pleased to have our first vessel, the “Ridgebury Lessley B”, become the latest member of Blue Fin. Based upon the trading results of Blue Fin as well as the transparency and management style of the Heidmar pools, we believe that Blue Fin is the best fit for Ridgebury,” commented Burke.
