The Apostleship of the Sea explains:
'The plight continues of the crew of the cargo ship, the Westwind II which has been arrested in Portland harbour for the last three months. On the 17th October the ship ran aground on the north east breakwater of Portland harbour with 11 crew onboard. Portland Harbour despatched tugs to bring the vessel to the port where she was detained by the Maritime Coastguard Agency (MCA) for a significant number of deficiencies, the ship was later arrested by the Admiralty Marshal. Over the last three months local volunteers of the Apostleship of the Sea have visited the ship many times.' Read more...
