The Marine Casualty Investigation Board has published a highly critical report on the sinking of the reality television programme vessel, Cabin Fever, off Tory Island in 2003.

The report says the three-masted schooner breached its operating licence and had no effective watchkeeping, and that the contestants were fatigued at the time of the accident. 

The 'Cabin Fever' programme had been commissioned by RTÉ from a private company, Coco Television, which has disputed some of the investigator's comments.
