13 Oktober 2015 - Fairtransport
Yesterday, around 7.30am, a fishing trawler hit Nordlys whilst she was at anchor nearby the harbor of Douarnenez.
No one got hurt, the crew is okay, not a scratch!
Unfortunately Nordlys is badly damaged.
At this moment she stays in the dry-docks of Douarnenez and everyone is gathering themselves around Nordlys and Fairtransport to get our Lady back on track as soon as possible.
The crew is busy with the formalities. After that they will prepare the repair of Nordlys. The repair will take approximately 2 months.
The sailing-schedule of 2016 will not be in danger.
More news to come, we will keep you informed of the progress.
Maandag 12 oktober rond half acht in de ochtend is er een vissersboot tegen Nordlys aangevaren.
Ze lag voor anker dichtbij de haven van Douarnenez. De crew is ongedeerd maar Nordlys heeft flinke schade opgelopen.
Momenteel ligt ze op de werf in Douarnenez. Daar zal, na alle formaliteiten, begonnen worden met de reparatie.
Zoals we nu kunnen inschatten zal dat twee maanden in beslag nemen.
Het vaarschema van 2016 blijft dus onveranderd.
