I was working during this night, vsl arrive at pilot station, at 0000LT, for start operations at 0200, ship pass racon buoy red to buoy not green to buoy. After this mistake vsl try to change her course but was impossible to correct and finally grounding on rocks. The point of ground has draft of 9 meters and maximum draft of ship on his arrival at barcelona I supose around 13.5 meters.
After this port was closed for big ships around 3 hours. Several tugs were working and after 16 hours vsl berth in his nominated quay.
Now I unknow damage but vsl loaded all cargo from bcn to Far east in normal voyage.
