Ireland, after a year of drifting ghost ship aground near Cork. The fault of the storm Dennis
A “ghost ship” was stranded in Ireland after traveling adrift in the Atlantic for over a year. The Odyssey of the boat, abandoned by the crew off the coast of Bermuda, has led her to sail from the american continent to Africa and Europe. Swept by atlantic currents, has faced waves and storm surges, is rusty and has lost some pieces, but it remained afloat.

Until the storm Dennis, which is in these days bersagliando Great Britain and the North of France has not decided his fate. Sunday's race is finished near Cork, to the amazement of the locals. The great ship is motionless on the rocky shores and jagged cliffs of Ballycotton, a fishing village overlooking the Celtic Sea. There was "one chance in a million" that the ship would stop in that country in the south-west of Ireland, said John Tattan, director of rescue operations local.

The "Mv-High" was built in 1976 and entered service in Tanzania, before changing the owner in 2017. In September of 2018, reports the Guardian, the boat merchant, long 77 metres, is sailing from Greece, in the direction of Haiti, the Caribbean Sea. But something went wrong: the ship is gone in the loss of about 2,220 kilometres to the south-east of Bermuda. The damage was not repairable on board, and the ten members of the crew were forced to abandon it to its fate.

While the sailors were rescued by the u.s. coast guard and brought to puerto Rico, from that moment, for the big boat, the merchant began the solitary journey across the Atlantic Ocean. His path is not clear but it is thought that the Mv High has coasted Africa, and have traveled, driven by the current, off the coasts of the Spanish and the French before running aground in Ireland. In August 2019, reports the Irish Times, the navy icebreaker Hms Protector, has crossed the mercantile drifting in the Atlantic off the coast of africa.

Now what to do with the big wreck? On Monday, the irish coast guard and other local authorities have discussed what to do with this great and uncomfortable "tourist". Cork county council has asked people to stay away from the wreck as it is positioned close to the cliffs, and is moved by the waves and strong winds. A helicopter flew over the ship to check for any leakage of oil or other polluting substances. Also, because the phenomenon is not the past, surely unnoticed: many of the curious went to see the big ship by photographing and posting the images on social.
