Happens sometimes to the best of us.....
At least the only injury was pride.

"A full RNLI investigation will take place to ascertain the cause of the grounding."

I would have thought it was a distinct lack of water!!!

Can't really argue with that!

My father was a pilot in the RAF & towards the end of his career was in charge of various squadrons & air groups. In the unfortunate event of the loss of a plane, or hecopleter, we wouldn't see him for days while the offficial enquiry took place. After the dust settled the unofficial conclusion was always the same - "ran out of air".

Similar thing happened over here a week ago, a 75 metre ice-class cruise ship ran aground while attempting to go up a section of a river mouth, the Captain had gotten stuck on a sand bar while the tide was rushing out and was forced to wait two days before the tide would set him and his 60 or so passengers free, luckily the damage was not bad and they continued their voyage in to arctic waters. I personally would have gotten off the ship.
