While en route to Portugal, on Thursday January 18, 2007, during European windstorm "Kyrill", severe gale force winds and huge waves caused serious damage to her hull, with a crack in one side and a flooded engine room. The ship was then 50 miles (80 km) off the coast of The Lizard, Cornwall.

At around 10:30 GMT, the crew sent out a distress call. Not long after, the captain ordered the crew to abandon ship into a life raft. They were out at sea for several hours before all 26 crew were rescued. They were picked up from their lifeboat by Sea King helicopters of the Royal Navy's Fleet Air Arm and taken to Royal Naval Air Station Culdrose in Cornwall, England. During the difficult rescue, one helicopter broke two winch lines, making it even harder to rescue the seamen. The rough seas and gale force winds gave the men acute seasickness, and in some cases hypothermia.
