60th anniversary of one' of Britain's worts lifeboat disaster. Just because it was quite a long time ago doesn't mean we should forget.

"All 39 on board the Samtampa perished when the ship ran aground at Sker Point and the eight lifeboat men from Mumbles sent to their rescue were also killed."

I know Sker point well and although I don't normally believe in the supernatural I would describe it as an evil place. It really is a terrible place to be in a storm - even on the land!!!
