October 27, 2021 Maritime Safety News

General cargo ship BEAUMAIDEN with cargo of fertilizers ran aground some 300 meters off western coast of Bornholm island, Denmark, Baltic sea, at around 0100 UTC Oct 18, while en route from Antwerp to Estonia. From the looks of track, the ship sailed straight towards coast, she didn’t change the course when she should, most likely because bridge watch fell asleep, it doesn’t look like there was some kind of mechanical failure taking ship out of control. No breaches reported, no spill. Refloating attempts under way.
