WATCH: Makes it through the Corinth Canal – only just!

The Captain of the cruise liner MS Braemar has managed to set a new record by achieving the practically impossible – taking his ship through a narrow  canal in Greece.

The MS Braemar is 22.5 metres in width, and it just made it through the Corinth Canal in Greece, being the widest vessel ever to pass through this canal.

As the video footage shows, most of the passengers on the cruise liner came out to see for themselves what was going on, and even managed to actually touch the sides of the canal.

The 24,000-ton vessel was guided by a tug boat.

The Corinth Canal in Greece is some four miles in length,. and was constructed in 1893 to link Greece with the Peloponnese peninsula.
