Re: Loss of "Astrid" due to "photo opportunities"


The ship was not certified as a passenger ship for either EU or international voyages nor were the crew appropriately certified and the ship should not have been at sea,” the report concluded.

The inquiry found an annual inspection of liferafts, due in April 2013, had not been carried out although they worked without problems during the rescue.

Also, the tall ship did not have a valid Certificate of Seaworthiness and the Master’s Certificate of Competency expired one month before the accident.
