Hoegh Osaka apparently grounded and listing on Bramble bank after leaving Southampton just after 20.00 tonight.  Tugs and lifeboats in attendance.  Tugela inbound turned around to Dront Line anchorage.  Southampton port presumably closed.

Port still open as car carrier Honor has departed, Hoegh Osaka is outside the main channel, pilot off the inbound Tugela is now aboard the Hoegh Osaka..

Hoegh Osaka must be well out of channel then.  List looks to be around 45 degrees.

Lying to the East of the West Bramble buoy, seemingly atop the part of the Brambles on which the natives play cricket during the summer.
Well over and no doubt with a cargo shift, seeing as it's HW now and they haven't dragged her off the view at LW could be somewhat drastic.

Anyone know what type of cars she has on board? A lot of Range Rovers and Rolls Royces are exported through Southampton. Who fancies a side swiped Roller?

A look back at the ship's track, it almost appears as if she was grounded deliberately with a big 180 degree turn after passing the Brambles Buoy. Either that or total steering failure.

Now appearing as if she was deliberately beached after suffering a loss of stability and taking on a severe angle of list when making the turn, slack ballast tanks and an in process fuel transfer suggested as being the problem.

Looks similar to the "Cougar Ace" incident a while back. Hopefully they can bring her on even keel by reballasting her.

The main problem with refloating is that she went aground about an hour before high water on what was the highest tide for two weeks.  So I guess she will remain there for some while - and if we get a storm or two in the meantime, who knows what the outcome will be.

Allan - do you think her list is exacerbated by lying on sloping ground?  Or is it fairly level there?

there is an annual cricket game on Bramble Bank on the lowest tide of the summer, so although not Lord's it's fairly flat, unless she is right on the edge.

David, the ground there is level enough to play cricket on but I see your point; it is possible she is lying on the edge of the bank.
Allan, re the weather; it is forecast to start getting a bit tasty tomorrow evening, with the wind gradually strengthening over the coming days, winding up at 20kts plus by Thursday. It gets even fresher in the days that follow, perhaps as high as 30kts.
And of course, the tide is starting to drop after Thursday.
