Drunk Sailor Beaches Ship After Leaving Port Stephens

A drunk sailor has run his boat aground while travelling from Port Stephens to Queensland.

The 33-foot cruiser ended up on Main Beach, Forster at around 7.30pm last night.

Police allege the man returned a positive breath test, and ended up blowing 0.159 back at the station.

A 55-year-old-man has been charged with high range drink driving and was refused bail to face Taree Local Court today.

While a crane is needed to move the boat off the beach.
