The 99 meter long, 5118 dwt freighter Recep Karu went aground while leaving the Azov Sea port of Temryuk, Russia loaded with 3000 metric tons of wheat. The vessel’s bow became stuck in the muddy bottom and required the assistance of three tugs before being refloating later the same day. The Recep Karu returned to Temryuk for a diver inspection of the hull. No reports of injuries, damage or pollution being released.
