De nombreuses cartes, schémas et photos permettent de comprendre ce qui s'est passé et d'expliquer comment le Red Falcon a coulé le Greylag avant de s'échouer.Le Red Falcon échoué dans la brumeOn Sunday 21 October 2018 at 0811, the roll-on roll-off passenger ferry Red Falcon collided with and sank the yacht Greylag, which was on its mooring in Cowes Harbour, while the visibility within the harbour was severely reduced by fog. Red Falcon subsequently passed through the yacht moorings and ran aground in soft mud. Red Falcon was re-floated later that morning having suffered no damage. There were no injuries sustained to passengers or crew, and no pollution. The yacht Greylag was a constructive total loss.The master of the Red Falcon lost orientation when his vessel swung out of control, departed the navigable channel and was spun around through 220°. In his confusion the master drove the ferry in the wrong direction resulting in a collision with the moored yacht Greylag which was sunk on its mooring as a result. Visibility varied between 0.2 and 0.5 nautical miles, but dropped to about 50 meters at the time of the collision. The MAIB report states that the master became fixated upon the information displayed on his electronic chart and operating engine controls, ignored information displayed on other electronic equipment and became cognitively overloaded due to high stress. The bridge team became disengaged from the operation due to a lack of clear communications and emergency scenario training.
