The ongoing saga of grounded German Cargo Ship Kiani Satu is still making headlines in local papers and around the world – In Knysna although the initial buzz has worn off a bit, and everyone is just ‘getting down to business’ the NSRI are still very busy making things happen to ensure a good result for all. We continue to wish them well in their attempts to refloat the ship……
It seems so sad that the vessel everyone fought so hard to save (and in doing so prevented a massive disaster) has now been dragged from the sand and has been towed out to sea. The stricken ship will sink naturally which seems rather tragic. Read the full story here….
KIANI SATU – UPDATE – FOR ALL THE UP TO DATE INFO – CLICK HERE
The cargo carrier Kiani Satu was successfully (hooray) refloated and towed out to sea over the weekend. A phenomenal effort on the part of more than 300 people enabled the stranded vessel to be dragged from the banks of the Goukamma nature reserve!
Our thanks go out to everyone involved for helping to avoid what could have been an astronomical disaster. Especially since we have such sensitive environments in the area. Well done to all involved!!
It seems that there is good news all around with lovely sunny weather coming in, and less wind and waves…. the oil has stopped leaking out of the cargo ship and things are developing and will hopefully come a good conclusion…..
