Costa manoeuvres

, July 23, 2014

A Grimaldi lines ship sails in front of the cruise liner Costa Concordia during the refloat operation manoeuvres at Giglio Island on July 23. The manoeuvres began early on Wednesday to remove the rusty hulk of the Costa Concordia cruise liner from the Italian island where it struck rocks and capsized two years ago, killing 32 people. A convoy of 14 vessels, led by the tug boat Blizzard, will start to tow the Concordia later on Wednesday to a port near Genoa in northern Italy where it is due to arrive on Sunday, before being broken up for scrap.
