A French yacht named Little Big Boat ran aground in the British port of St Helier. The vessel tried to squeeze through the gate, but got stuck and went aground.

According to BBC, it was because of low water level in the harbor.

Free passage through the gate can be only during the tide - it is written on the plates, but the crew of the vessel, probably, did not read them.

Anyway, a port official said that neither the yacht nor the gate were damaged. The crew of Little Big Boat just had to wait for the tide.
