Famous Shipwreck on Zakynthos, Greece

In 1980, a freighter was pursued by the Greek Navy. The crew were suspected of smuggling contraband and the navy chased the ship through the Ionian sea. Allegedly, they had wine, tobacco and women on board. The chase came to an abrupt end when the ship ran aground in stormy weather on the coast to the north of the island at Porto Vromi.
