Update on Ship Chrashed on Woodhouse Reef Sharm El Sheikh Red Sea

It has been fortunate for CSCL Hamburg after running aground on Woodhouse reef, that the weather in the Straits of Tiran has been kind to it.

Regular diving visitors to Sharm will know how the sea can be rough in that area. Being at the mouth of the Gulf of Aqaba and exposed to approx 600 KM of open sea where the Northerly wind predominantly bears down, causing waves to crash over Woodhouse reef.

As you can see fro the photo above, this week the sea has been calm, minimising the damaged being caused to the bow section while the ship awaits repairs so it can be pull off the reef.
We will be visiting Woodhouse tomorrow and post our findings and current photos.
