* It is reported that the STAR CENTAURUS ran aground in Kali Limenes, Crete on 22 June 2020.

* With the assistance of a tug, the vessel was later refloated and taken to anchor in the bay of Kali Limenes for inspections. The vessel is currently banned from sailing until the presentation of a class maintenance certificate by the attending classification society.

* It is possible that General Average / Salvage and associated recovery issues may arise as a result of this casualty.

* If General Average is declared, General Average security may be required from all Cargo Interests prior to the delivery of their cargo and we are likely to be able to assist.

* Salvage Security may also be demanded from a source in the UK and W K Webster may also be able to assist with the provision of security. Security provided by WKW is acceptable to the Council of Lloyds and widely preferred by professional Salvors.

* We therefore recommend that you contact us urgently if you are concerned with any cargo on board this vessel so that we can immediately start taking steps to protect your interests.
