The Liberian OBO Gino was on a voyage from Pt Arthur to LeHavre,
carrying a cargo of 32000 tons of carbon black
which is 1.09 times heavier than water,
when she sank following a collision in dense fog
with the Norwegian motor tanker Team Castor
about 40 miles off the coast of Brittany
inlat 48.17.30N, long 05.39.36W on April 28, 1979.
All 33 of her crew were safely picked up from lifeboats,
then landed at Brest.
Team Castor lost about 100 tons of her own fuel oil
from a badly damaged tank.
