Die in Liberia registrierte Gino kollidiert vor der Insel Ouessant im Westen des Kanals mit einem norwegischen Tanker und sinkt. Das Asphaltöl aus der Gino breitet sich auf dem Meeresboden aus und treibt später weit südlich bis an die Strände von La Baule.

On 28 April 1979, the Liberian oil tanker Gino, transporting 40,000 tonnes of carbon black, a refined oil 1.09 times denser than water, was en route from Port Arthur (Texas) to Le Havre, when she sank off Ushant island after colliding with the Norwegian oil tanker Team Castor in foggy conditions.

About 1,000 tonnes of oil were spilled from a damaged tank in the Team Castor. 17 antipollution vessels poured dispersants on the oil slick.
The Gino sank 120 metres deep, taking her cargo with her. Despite its viscosity, the carbon black spread into the surrounding water.
