Stuck sideways

March 24, 2021

For the past day, Suez traffic has been blocked in both directions by a large container ship that ran aground and got stuck sideways in the canal. Reading that should give most every sailor a bit of relief that the last time they grounded, it was not in quite so obvious a circumstance, given that 12% of the “world’s trade by volume” passes through the canal. Needless to say, tugs are hard at work to make things better.
