The photo shows the distinctive knuckled bow of a Westerly.

Anyone with any more news?

Hi All,

Yep seen the photo, looks like a Centaur to me. They built them well in those days!! I don't know the out come of this grounding or how much damage was done, if it had been another make of yacht I wonder if it would have survived?
