Captayannis0612.jpg
The Sugar Ship1296 viewsAn aerial view of the 8,325 ton Greek cargo ship Captayannis lying on a sandbank near to Ardmore Point not long after she was sunk. On the evening of January 27 1974 the area suffered from a terrific storm which blew the vessel from its anchor and caused it to collide with the BP tanker British Light. The anchor chains of the tanker holed the sugar boat allowing water to pour into her, so she was beached in the shallow waters over the sandbank.Nov 11, 2007
