Probe: Ady Gil and Japanese whaling ship each violated ColRegs

(WELLINGTON, New Zealand) — A Japanese whaling ship and anti-whaling activist vessel both violated international rules when they collided near Antarctica, Bloomberg News reported. The Ady Gil, owned by the Seattle-based Sea Shepard Conservation Society, didn’t have a proper lookout and failed to take evasive action. The whaling ship, which was overtaking, failed to keep clear to avoid the collision. The Ady Gil eventually sank.
