On July 13, 2010, two ships participating in the Tall Ships Races were in collision in the port of Antwerp: The "Thor Heyerdahl", formerly the cargo m/v "Minnow", and the Oman registered "Shabab Oman" (MMSI-No.: 461000409). When the "Thor Heyerdahl" left its berth at the Napoleon Quay it hit the "Shabab Oman". The sihps were thus unable to attend the windjammer parade on the Scheldt. The "Thor Heyerdahl" later joined the race to Aalborg, while the "Shabab Oman" remained berthed and also had to carry out engine repairs which would last around two days.Upload News
