The yacht is called Mar Sem Fim (Endless Sea), it sank following compression of the hull by ice, the 4 crew were all rescued and survived, there are quite a few stories about it online. The incident was only a few months ago(April this year)

The image is quite ghostly!

I just hope the gas oil on board was recovered or contained in some way?

It would be a terrible shame to create a rainbow slick in what is one of the few unspoilt area's still left on this overpopulated planet of ours.

First there were specialist company's taking well paying passengers down to have a look around, then cruise company's got in on the act and now small charter (or private?) boats too.....

Shame...
