The "Ben-my-Chree" allided with a pier on the Isle of Man as the ferry tried to dock in strong winds on Feb 12, 2017, at 6.15 p.m. On arrival in Douglas Harbour the "Ben-my-Chree" encountered significantly stronger than forecast easterly winds and the vessel made contact with the King Edward Pier.Services from Douglas to the UK have been disrupted after the ship, which sailed from Heysham, Lancashire, struck the pier at low tide. No passengers or crew were injured. The 08:45 a.m. service to Heysham, the 7.45 p.m. service and the overnight return sailing were cancelled.
