On July 29, the 30 meter long passenger 2-masted sailing ship Helena ran aground off Kjeholmen, Norway. The vessel was on a charter voyage with 123 passengers when it ran aground onto the rocks. Reports state the master of the Helena thought the water was deeper than it was actually. There was no panic on board and the vessel suffered minimal damage as it was proceeding at a slow speed. The vessel contacted the NSSR who dispatched a lifeboat to the scene. Half a hour later, the lifeboat pulled the Helena free. No reports of injuries, damage or pollution released.
