The ship "BSLE Sunrise" was refloated tonight Saler beach and taken to the port of Valencia, according to Harbour Master. The strong waves, with waves up to two meters, attracted around the boat to many surfers. His presence was a signal for the tugs "Punta Mayor" and "Sar Mesana" rescue work started after the withdrawal of dredges.
Sunrise has finally arrived at the port about six in the morning and has been docked at the North Pier.
However, the operation was not easy and lasted for hours. Those responsible for the rescue towing chose from two different positions, forcing out to enable a "High End" connected to stern as the "Sar Mesana" which launched the cable used in the early days of the operation, trying to drag fore the ship aground.
The cable was made by a small boat in a move not without danger by strong waves that delayed the start of the rescue, scheduled from 17 pm.
Apparently, the pilots wanted to break the sand belt surrounding the boat alternately pulling one (port side) side (port quarter) forcing the swing that gave such good results in the rescue of "Celia", although in the latter case used ship's own cranes with two containers boat acting as counterweights.
In the evening, while retired surfers on the beach only about fifty people, most media-attended final preparations amid strong westerly winds reaching gusts of 18 knots.
After the transfer of the ship to port facilities, is expected to be subjected to a thorough inspection.
The rescue of "BSLE Sunrise" has been more complicated than that of "Celia", also stranded on 28 September following a violent easterly storm, due to the presence of a seabed sludge bed.
