This week in the world of boating we have seen a bridge be taken out by a ship and the Black Sea freeze




Fishing vessel Girl Rona capsized at the beginning of this week, spilling 2,000 gallons of diesel and 20 tonnes of fish by the entrance of the Teignmouth in Devon. 

The USS Shoup is undergoing a refit at Vigor Shipyard on Harbour Island, Seattle, the Costa Concordia suffered a violent night of heavy seas, resulting in a crack appearing, leaking out oil.

The Black Sea has frozen over, trapping a sailing yacht and the Delta marina smashed through the Eggner’s Ferry Bridge, resulting in the bridge being closed.
