The 333 meter long, 124479 dwt container ship Cap San Lorenzo ran aground in the North Sea near Vissingen, Netherlands. The boxship was en route to Le Havre from Antwerp when it ran hard aground on a sandbar. Initial attempts to refloat the Cap San Lorenzo failed due to fog and low tide. A second attempt with the aid of four tugs was successful later the same day. No reports of injuries to the 29 crew on board, damage or pollution released. The boxship proceeded to an anchorage off Ostend where divers conducted a survey before allowing the vessel to proceed on its voyage.
