Ghost ship wrecks Bali surfing contest

Mark Forbes in Denpasar July 16, 2008 AN ILLEGAL fishing ship whose captain is rumoured to have been murdered has thrown plans for the World Surfing Championship in Bali into chaos by running aground on the island's best surf break.Mystery surrounds the arrival of the Taiwanese vessel Ho Tsai Fa No. 18 off Padang Padang beach. Locals woke on Saturday to see the 30-metre-long vessel foundering on a reef, and reaped a barbecue bonanza by emptying its holds of tuna and shark.

Not only did it kill the contest, but I bet cargo like that would attract some serious shark action to the area.

I'd be more worried about the effects of the spilled fuel!
