#Following Friday's Afloat.ie story on the scrapping of a Clasic Irish yacht, owner Eanan O'Doherty has received 'lots of emails' about the Bangor S27 Sorona due for breaking up.

Among the offers of assistance are emails from the Secretary of Co Down Heritage committee plus two boat preservation activists in Northern Ireland.

O'Doherty says he is delighted the boat does not need to be scrapped as he feared and instead is now hopeful Sorona will go to a new owner in a matter of weeks. 

The 1963–built Sorona is in a yard at Monsterboice near Drogheda and has to be removed.

O'Doherty might even recover some of his losses on her, but at  the very least, he says, she will now be saved.

He also says that if any club or group take her he will insist she when restored be used for sail training.
