On 6th June 1976, the Brazilian dry cargo vessel called ALTAIR grounded off Cassino beach, south of the Rio Grande city, in Rio Grande do Sul state, in Brazil, with 3.000tons (load) of grain. All her 21 crew members were rescued with sucess! The ship cannot be removed and security comapny declared the "total loss" for this vessel.
The ALTAIRīs parts still remains beached in Cassino beach, and vessel to date, turns a turistic "curiosity" visitation in this city!
