Greek Ferry Battles Huge Waves in the Aegean (video)



A Greek ferry battled with the waves on Sunday while approaching the port of the island of Naxos, as gale force winds of up to 8 Beaufort swept the Aegean.

The captain of “Paros Jet” stabilized the vessel carrying hundreds of passengers as it tilted violently from left to right. He waited for the all-clear from the authorities before it entered the port, where other ships were docked.

All passengers disembarked safely.

Meanwhile, the Hellenic Seamens’ Federation (PNO) has declared a 24-hour strike on Wednesday, July 3rd.

The Federation decided to proceed with strike action as their demands were not satisfied in a recent proposal by shipowners regarding collective labor agreements.
