Rough Weather Causes Reefer to List off France

The 10,603 dwt reefer vessel Baltic Performer has suffered a list after its cargo shifted in inclement weather conditions, according to French Préfecture maritime Atlantique.

The vessel was off the coast of Penmarch, Bay of Biscay when it reported the list of 12 degrees in the afternoon hours of October 21.

At the time, the 1992-built reefer, crewed by 25 seafarers, was sailing from the Dutch port of Vlissingen to Senegal.

The Liberia-flagged ship changed its course on October 22 and docked at the port of Brest in France around 6 pm on October 23, where it still remains, according to AIS data provided by Marine Traffic.

There were no reports of injuries to the crew nor loss of cargo.
