Ferry KAPAN WAINAMI beached in Papua
Ferry KAPAN WAINAMI ran aground on rocks in Wondama Bay, northern Papua, Indonesia, shortly after midday Mar 6. Some time later high swell took the vessel off rocks and washed her ashore. Vessel’s grounding explained by navigational error. 39 passengers and crew safely reached the shore, no injures reported. Vessel was en route from Nabire to Wondama Bay.
