On August 11, the 30 meter long fishing vessel Julien Coleou became disabled in Audierne Bay off Finistère, France. The Julien Coleou had suffered engine problems which had reduced the vessel to just 1.5 knots. The crew requested assistance with the tug Scorff responding. The tug took the fishing vessel under tow back to Lorient. No reports of injuries to the seven crew on board. An investigation has been launched to find out the cause of the engine problem.
