The wind blew hard this Monday in Brest. Placed on yellow alert for strong winds, the city of Ponant was the scene of a rare accident. In its port, the Renaissance liner broke its moorings, no doubt pushed by the violent gusts that swept Finistère. Around 2:30 p.m., the imposing liner began to drift into the harbour. According to the maritime prefecture of the Atlantic, the ship hit another boat which was on the other side of the port. The collision with the long LNG carrier caused no injuries. No pollution was observed.

The alert was quickly given by the commercial port and several tugs were mobilized in the port to push the imposing liner. Five harbor tugs and a coastal tug, the Buffle, brought the Renaissance back to its dock. According to West France, two slight dents were observed in the top of the hull of the LNG carrier Hoegh Gannet, which flies the Singaporean flag. An investigation has been opened to shed light on this incident.
