The Sea Shepherd has a fleet of several ships, and one of them has been seriously damaged by a giant rogue wave.
It seems pretty serious and the rescue is still under way.
The Brigitte Bardot, the ship that was damaged, issued a distress signal.
“Steve Irwin responds to a distress call issued by the Brigitte Bardot. Brigitte Bardot was very seriously damaged by a powerful wave which has cracked the bow and the pontoon.
The Steve Irwin reported that they are currently facing the storm to reach the position of Brigitte Bardot, some 240 nautical miles South West. It will be on-site in approximately 20 hours.
The Steve Irwin and will ensure the safety of the crew and then plans to escort the ship damaged in Fremantle for repairs.”
The Steve Irwin is another ship in the Sea Shepherd fleet and it is on its way to rescue the damaged ship.
The entire crew of the Brigitte Bardot is in our thoughts, and we hope for a speedy and successful rescue.
