Vessel that ran aground at Cranstal back in Manx waters

CEG Orbit sailing again

A ship that got stuck near Cranstal, in August, has been back in Manx waters.

The Latvian flagged CEG Orbit has been delivering a cargo to the Mezeron berth at Ramsey.

The CEG Orbit ran aground on the night of 28 August in calm conditions north of Ramsey.

She was eventually pulled from the beach after two attempts by a pair of tugs -the Wendy Ann of the Laxey Towing Company and another from Liverpool.

The vessel sailed to Douglas under her own steam where the hull was checked by divers.

An investigation into the incident is being carried out, on behalf of the Latvian authorites, by the Isle of Man Ship Registry though no findings have yet been published.
