Calamaba runs aground in Sardinia

The 26 metre Riva motor yacht Calamaba ran aground on the coast of Sardinia on Saturday October 14, according to local publication La Nuova Sardegna. The incident took place just a few metres from the Cala Sabina beach at around 8pm local time and pictures posted on social media show significant damage to the Riva 85 Opera yacht's GRP hull, but no signs of pollution.

It is understood that four people were on board at the time of the collision and no serious injuries have been reported. The cause of the crash is not yet clear, however, anchor failure has been ruled out as a yacht of this size would need to be travelling at a significant speed to mount the rocks in this manner.
