Dutch REGGEDIJK (IMO 9515034) seems to have had trouble soon after leaving Shoreham on Monday for Praia da Vitoria, Azores, then drifted around. Yesterday she was joined by ABEILLE LIBERTÉ, which appears to have her in tow for Cherbourg.

Meanwhile DOLFIJN (IMO 8815786) for Shoreham from Riga arrived off the port yesterday and seems to have become involved with REGGEDIJK (standing by?) and is still apparently accompanying the other two vessels southward.

Anyone know what is actually happening?

The "Reggedijk" has not contacted her Class Society recently.
