Looks to be lying East of the Brambles West Cardinal buoy - very shallow in there, so much so that they play cricket on the bank during the lowest summer tides. Marine Traffic suggests steering failure (or major cock up) as she makes the turn around the buoy and just keeps on going up onto the bank. There are photos circulating online which show her with a large angle of heel/list - the bottom around there is soft mud so I doubt she's suffered serious bottom damage, however a cargo shift is likely. She will no doubt have loaded brand new cars/ro-ro in Southampton.
All crew are now off and high water is just about now, so if they don't pull her off there could be some interesting pictures at low water.

Looking at the AIS track she was just about to leave the Southampton Pilotage area and even backtracked a little before stopping.
There is no pilotage requirement for west Solent. East Solent is covered by Portsmouth.
Maybe the Pilot had disembarked already.

Pilotage limits are Here

Bramble weather

The Bramble turn is a standard requirement on Bridge Simulation courses at Warsash.

According to the AIS track, she has rounded the W.Bramble buoy on the correct side with port rudder to line herself up for the Eastern Solent. Possibly looks like the steering gear has failed and the rudder has stayed with port helm after clearing the buoy, putting her on the bank. Pretty sure she would not have been going for the Western Solent as bound for Germany. Pilot would not disembark in Eastern Solent until at least clear of the Forts off Portsmouth or possibly even out at the Nab.

I agree, she would have been going out via the Nab. I see smaller cargo ships going out via the Needles(western Solent) from my home here on the island, but rarely car carriers. Ships usually get pretty close to the Nab before disembarking the pilot. Possibly a steering gear problem as you say.

I would imagine that her cargo would be in a hell of a mess with that list! A lot of scrap metal now.

Mike, I'd assumed departing via the Nab too. Lets hope the steering problem was not of the fingers variety.

Re my #15 - Wrong early assumption on my part - on looking again I see the 'steering problem' as described by Mike H.

Re. the cargo and getting her upright .... Depends on how much of her cargo was lashed and the way it was distributed through the decks ! Cars could possibly "hang" off their lashings at 45 degs., but if much heavy plant on board, then that's a different story ! Wanna buy a motor, slightly scratched !! ?? Good to hear nobody lost or seriously hurt.

By the look of the latest picture her rudder is hard over to starboard.

Early days but would tend to agree steering, or over steering could be the contributory cause.

Most car carriers are fitted with Becker trailing flap rudders - this to aid manoeuvering, but also, coupled with high horsepower bow thrusters, alleviate the need for tugs and or pilots in Japanese ports, more so for departure when the vessel can lift herself off the berth.

If she was rouding W Bramble, speeding up and an excessive amount of helm used the turn could quickly become excessive and uncontrolled.

(Sailed with these both offshore and on PCCs)

Heard a report on radio earlier - Someone being interviewed stated that two crew injured, one with suspected broken leg .
