End of the line Advance sinks

Six crew were winched to safety off the 2,890 dwt cargoship Advance just before it sank off the tip of France’s Brittany peninsula early yesterday morning. The crew were unable to stop the intake of water into its cargo hold despite assistance from French marine fire fighters and the 1982-built, Saint Vincent and Grenadines-flagged vessel finally sank 75 nautical miles from the coast in 1,000 m-1,500 m of water. Advance, which was operated by Inter Marine of Norway, was carrying 1,000 tonnes of manganese and 1,600 tonnes of clay. Full story Page 5. French Marine Nationale
