The 76 meter long, 1837 dwt freighter Suledrott went aground near Bøfjord, Norway. The Suledrott had become stuck on a rock causing damage to the hull. A small hole in the bow allowed some water ingress, but the vessel was able to control the flooding. The Suledrott contacted the Rescue Coordination Center who dispatched a NSSR lifeboat to the scene. With the rising tide, the NSSR lifeboat was able to refloat the Suledrott. The vessels proceeded to Torvika where the Suledrott berthed. No reports of injuries to the five crew on board and no pollution was released.
The 114 meter long, 3584 dwt freighter Artey became disabled in the Dardenelles near Istanbul, Turkey. The Artey had suffered engine failure after departing the Marmara Sea.
