Wreck

Ribald,

Thanks for the info. Is that wreck at N50 39.71 W1 35.633 just south of Goose Rock ?

Any idea what boat it was ?

Regards Nick R.

I think it's called the Varvarssi. Went down in 1947. Been catching boats ever since.

I saw a crazy folk boat sailor hit the goose rock at the needles during the round the island race one year. He smacked into it at some ridiculous speed, rose a foot or 2 out of the water then drifted off and carried on around the island!

He seemed to be completely oblivious to the fact that he could have half ripped his keel off! nutter.

Don't think i'll be able to make this RIBing extravaganza on the 8th. Sounds like a bloody good laugh though. I'll keep a eye on this forum to see your plans though. Maybe come and blag some of Hightower's BBQ food! haha!

Anyway, good luck to all.

Tim

Hi all,

Things might sem to have gone quiet on this thread but I can assure you its just a case of waiting for the day now and hopefully the weather!!!!

I visited Culver Cliffs and the cafe the other day and was most impressed. It was good weather and just like being abroad.

I went to Sandown the next day and it it was blowing a hooly. Nasty big waves.

Regards Nick R.

I think he means Whitecliff Bay which is tucked under the north side of the big headland (Culver Down) to the north of Sandown Bay. Been there a couple of times at anchor but never ashore.
