    Very sad indeed. Any chance of salvage and repair?

    We herd this in channel 16 yesterday, from Mallorca, so sad, 2 metre sea running and 15 to 20 knots of wind

    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?

    When did this happen? The linked reports say “late July”.
