Vermontborg - Delfzijl, Holland

Aground on the rocks near La Capelle Reef off the west coast of Guernsey, U.K. in the English Channel January 12th, 2003. At the time this picture was taken the tide was rising and the waves were crashing over the stricken ship's bow. No doubt the damage she sustained was made worse by the effects of the waves. The water was however hot high enough to float the ship free.
