The 158 meter long, 23360 dwt bulk freighter Starford went aground in Suva Bay near Suva, Fiji. The vessel had arrived from Shanghai and was at anchor when a cyclone passed through the area. The high winds and waves caused the Starford’s anchors to drag until it ran onto a reef. No reports of injuries. The Starford sustained only minor damage.
