Captain charged with drunk sailing

The captain and first mate of the freighter Norrvik have both been arrested and are charged with drunk sailing. The police have received the results of the blood tests taken on Saturday evening after the grounding, which occurred around 21 o'clock in Kalundborg Harbor at Gisseløre.

"There was no doubt that they had been drinking alcohol," says communications officer at Central and West Zealand police, Carsten Andersen, to sn.dk. He does not want to disclose the final number of the tests.

After the grounding, a couple of officers sailed to the ship with help from the navy detention center, where they immediately realized that the captain was drunk and called a doctor so blood samples could be taken.

The two Russians are taken to a constitutional court hearing at Holbæk Court later today.
The ship got free of the ground and docked in Kalundborg as a sailing ban was issued. The ship remains here. Norrvik is operated by Baltic Shipping Company, headquartered in Hundested. The ship is 3,254 DWT and sails under the Isle of Mans flag. It was built in 1979.
