Spirit of Bermuda and Resolute collide
The Spirit of Bermuda sail training vessel was involved in a collision with the ferry Resolute last night.
The incident occurred just after 9pm in Dundonald Channel, Sandys. No casualties were reported.
All fare-paying passengers on the Resolute and those on board the Spirit were taken off the vessels.
A spokesman at Bermuda Maritime Operations Centre told The Royal Gazette last night: “There are continuing efforts to free the vessels. Neither vessel is taking on water — the collision occurred above the water line.
“They are still attached to each other and there are ongoing efforts with Marine and Ports and other local vessels assisting. Marine Police are also on scene. There are a lot of resources actively working to free the vessels. The bow of the Spirit is somehow attached to the Resolute. Beyond that, how this happened is really unclear at this time.”
According to a police spokesman, civilian craft transported passengers safely to shore. Inquiries are being conducted by the marine police.
