General cargo ship MESSILA with cargo of wind turbine blades ran aground on eastern coast of Tilos island, Greece, Aegean sea, in the morning Aug 27, while en route from Mersin Turkey to Istanbul. Judging from track, the ship didn’t change course as she should, and headed straight ahead, at full speed. She’s probably seriously damaged. As of 1540 UTC Aug 27, she was in the same position, with tug at her side and another tug approaching.
