On the 24. January 2018 during a very windy day the trawlers Destiny TT279 (235003952), Margarita TT26 (235090298), Spindrift (235113822),Silver Fern (235006892), Rebekah.Jayne (232003730), Silver Lining III (235006963), Alliance CN207 (235004196) drove in formation along the Kintyre coast.
I assume in tribute for the Nancy Glen or searching the bodies of the two lost crewmen that capsized on the 18th of January.
“Two people were lost after the Nancy Glen (no MMSI) capsized in Loch Fyne.
In Loch Fyne Argyll and Bute, the Nancy Glen capsized and sank in front of the Stonefield Castle Hotel, Tarbert. The time was about 18.40 on the 18th of January 2018. Another ship received a distress call and one man could be saved. He arrived in stable condition at the Mid Argyll Hospital in Lochgilphead.
The two other crewmen are still missing. The RNLI Lifeboats from Tighnabruaich, Campbeltown and Arran, supported by the Coastguard Helicopter from Prestwick and the Coast Guard Teams from Tarbert, Kames, Inveraray und Crinan assisted in the search.
Also commercial ships helped. The lifeboat from Campbeltown was at sea the whole night. A ROV investigated the wreck that lay at sea close to Barmore Island, north of Tarbet. The search of the other emergency units continued on the 19th of January 2018 around 8 o’clock. The search was hindered by bad visibility. “
An investigation has been started.

As the Nancy Glen seemingly did not transmit an AIS signal and most likely would have been out of my receiver range, I have no data on this incident.
My receiver did not reach higher but the formation was also visible higher up on Marine Traffic.
