TORRE CANNAI, ITALY – On Saturday night (December 22nd) the Cdry Blue, a general cargo ship, ran aground on the rocks of Torre Cannai in Sant’Antioco in rough seas. The vessel was carrying a load of coffee when it left from Cagliari bound for Spain when it encountered a storm. In an effort to find shelter during the rough weather the vessel landed on the rocks in the evening.
The Italian coast guard, Guardia Costiera used a NEMO helicopter in difficult weather conditions to dramatically rescue all twelve members of the crew from the vessel.
The Coast Guard is now checking that there was no fuel spill in the sea of Sant’Antioco as a result of the incident.
