sugar-ship-w.jpg
Sugar ship533 viewsThe 8,325 ton Greek cargo ship Captayannis lying on a sandbank near to Ardmore Point. 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. Beyond is Helensburgh seafront and, up the hill, the huge metal box covering the Charles Rennie Mackintosh mansion Hill House during extensive repairs. 2020 image by T.Nugent. © Copyright and licensed for reuse under Creative Commons Licence.Mar 05, 2021
