A maritime mystery: What has been causing ships to sail in circles?

Strange things can happen at sea, as the crew of Liberian-flagged oil tanker Willowy confronted a mysterious incident on Sunday.

In the early hours of Sunday 31 May, senior officers aboard the oil tanker Willowy were called to the bridge to be told that their ship and four others in its vicinity were mysteriously sailing in circles, unable to steer, and on course to converge.

Ships appearing to sail in circles have become an increasingly common and mysterious phenomenon near a number of ports on the coast of PRC, especially near oil terminals and government facilities but nothing had been seen where the Willowy was.

Researchers monitoring these bizarre circles near the Chinese coast believe they are probably the result of systematic GPS manipulation designed to undermine a tracking system which all commercial ships are required to use under international law.
