    What makes you think that Costa Concordia passed between the two small islands at Le Scole?? Only a lunatic would do that. According to most other sources he hit a rock at the reef east of the two small islands.

      Hi Claes,
      We didn’t want to imply that the ship went through the two islands but we will update our screenshots to suit last sources. What we wanted to show was the shallowness of the area. Thank you for your comment!
