Abandoned yacht sinks on mooring

The abandoned Westerly Centaur, Lady Mine, which was left on Sun Pier for months, and subsequently broke her mast on the Veetee jetty, was left on an RNSA mooring. Today she sank, probably because the broken rigging snagged on the ground chain. What a sad end to yet another once-cherished boat, and an expensive problem for someone else to sort out!

  1. The RNSA is in discussion with Peel Ports over this. The riverbed is Crown Estates property so they will be consulted. We expect it to be a joint agency effort to raise and dispose of the vessel.
