Russian Ship Stranded on Cornish Beach
Cornwall Coastal Views: Russian Ship Stranded on Cornish Beach

On the morning of 18th December 2018, a 16,000 tonne Russian cargo ship, the Kuzma Minin, ran aground just off Gyllyngvase Beach, Falmouth.

The 590ft (180m) ship was listing about five degrees.

Several local harbour tugs came to its aid, with an RNLI lifeboat in attendance and another larger tug, Cannis arriving from Fowey just after high tide.

The combined effort of the tugs, the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) co-ordinating the rescue and the RNLI lifeboat saw the vessel being refloated and towed into deep water just after 2pm on the afternoon's high tide.
