- aground - 2013 (Corran Ledge, Oban Harbour, Scotland)
|20 May 2013||Ship Grounding|
On May 20, 2013, in the evening, the chartered by Noble Caledonia river cruise ship ran aground on Corran Ledge (near Oban, Scotland). The accident happened upon entering in Oban Bay (from the north), and close to St Columba’s Cathedral.
Encountering the Isle of Mull ferry, the riverboat went the wrong way around the navigation buoy. All the 112 passengers and crew remained on the grounded ship. No injuries were reported.
Due to strong winds pushing the boat towards the shore, its initial attempt to refloat using its own power failed. The second (successful) attempt was during high tide, when ~10:30 pm the ship was towed off.
