The Danish Maritime Accident Investigation Board has prepared a report on the sinking of the small tug boat Diver Master, which sunk on August 4th 2014. The tugboat capsized and sank near Esbjerg, as it was towing the large Russian training ship Kruzenstern out of the harbor
The school ship Kruzenstern was to depart early from The Tall Ships Races 2014 in Esbjerg August 4th at 17:30 p.m. The event did not end until the next day, but Kruzenstern had to attend a different arrangement. Because of a fireworks show that night, the port was set to close at 18:00 p.m.
