Video images show how the Russian four-masted barque hit the ships with its bowsprit at port side.

Despite the strong collision, which moved the ships at the quay, the damage at the Icelandic Coast Guard vessels was rather minor.

The "Kruzenshtern" arrived at Reykjavik on June 6 and was due to stay until August 9, when the celebrations end.
