The 20 meter long fishing vessel Lambert Gre 37 ran aground off Sylt, Germany. The Lamert Gre 37 was fishing when its gear got stuck on the bottom pulling the vessel a round. The master of the vessel decided to beach the vessel rather than striking the nearby groynes. The vessel became stuck as the tide receded. The DGzRS was alerted and dispatched a lifeboat to the scene. The lifeboat crew was able to connect a towline and pull the Lambert Gre 37 from the shallows. The vessels proceded to Havneby upon Rømø Island. No reports of injuries, damage or pollution released.
