Stricken yacht, Deerness (2 of 2)

The yacht that came to grief between the Brough of Deerness and Mull Head in the middle of August. It went ashore after dragging its anchor in fog, and belonged to a Swedish round the world sailor. He has made an excellent job of stripping the boat, and while it is still a disaster, he could have holed his boat in much less favourable surroundings.

Not much left of it now, just some bits of fibreglass on the shore really!
