Tarragona Boat Crash - The Movie

Friday morning's horror crash in Tarragona in Spain between a massive supply ship and the berthed classic schooner Eleanora (162ft) is now on YouTube in several versions. The shock of seeing such a vessel - one of the finest of the classic reproductions, and a replica of the legendary Westward - is made all the more horrific by noting how her masts and rigging are shaken like toys in the excruciating impact.

As Afloat previously reported here, Eleanora then sank in the harbour.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
