The 12 meter long fishing vessel Cap Jean ran aground off Cape de Miquelon, Saint Pierre, France. The fishing vessel requested assistance with a pilot boat, a SNSM lifeboat and the French Navy vessel Fulmar responding. The vessels found the Cap Jean resting on a sandbank and would remain aground until the rising tide. Several hours later at high tide, the pilot boat pulled the Cap Jean free then towed the fishing vessel to Miquelon. No reports of injuries to the 7 crew, damage or pollution released.
