    Very sad indeed. Any chance of salvage and repair?

    Taken from, classicsailboats . org

    Iolaire was lost on the NE coast of Ibiza because of bad seamanship, running downwind in heavy weather, close to shore, no main boom preventer rigged, inadvertent jibe, she drove ashore sank, crew ashore in life raft. Thus ended Iolaire’s 114 years of taking care of crew thru thick and thin.

    Very strange...........................................

    Son sailed with him for the best part of a season on Iolaire. It was toward the end of his stewardship of the boat.
    Pardon?

    So, Don Street sold her a few months ago (?) and she was lost on July 26th at 0200 and this “hit the press” on the 15th of August when Don wrote about it.

    R.I.P.

    A footnote to the boat’s long life history; when she was owned by Robert Somerset and still gaff rigged H.W.. Tilman crewed for Somerset on board her on two occasions “in order to learn from one whom I will always regard as the Master” before buying “Mischief from Ernle Bradford. Humphrey Barton was the broker in the sale of “Mischief.

    I'm sure Don sold her ten years ago.
