Jacoba Aleida UK 266
The 24 meter long fishing vessel Jacoba Aleida UK-266 ran aground off Ouddorp, Netherlands. The KNRM lifeboat from Ouddorp was dispatched to the scene. The lifeboat attempted to refloat the Jacoba Aleida, but the fishing vessel remained stuck. Another lifeboat arrived and also attempted to refloat the Jacoba Aleida without success. Another fishing vessel also attempted to pull the Jacoba Aleida free, but the fishing vessel continued to be stuck in the pounding surf. Finally, a tug was requested and it was able to pull the Jacoba Aleida free on the rising tide. No reports of injuries. The tug towed the Jacoba Aleida to Stellendam.
