Description: "The Edro III flying the Sierra Leone flag left the port of Lemesos under bad weather conditions with a cargo of plasterboard for the Greek island of Rhodes on December 7, 2011. A few hours into the voyage, Edro III encountered heavy seas, struck a rock, and drifted to the sea cliffs of the Municipality of Pegeia in western Cyprus on December 8, 2011. Since then, Edro III has been resting in the turquoise waters and has become a popular destination for panoramic sunsets."
