Floating Containers – A Danger to Yachts

YachtingworldA Danger to Yachts

Floating containers have been a danger to yachts for many years.

Container Ships are getting bigger and steaming slower, more and more containers therefore are (and will be) at sea at any given moment – on ships less able to react to changing conditions than ever before.

Meanwhile forecasts of Extreme Weather Events (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-30985039) tell us that the weather is to continue to become more (twice as) dangerous and unpredictable.

Floating containers in the shipping lanes are and continue to be a hazard to smaller craft – the future looks bleak without a solution to the problem of semi-submerged containers.
