The Shippe Swallower Claims Another Vessel


I have added The Maritime and Coastguard Office Agency Blog to the latest posts thingy on the sidebar of this one, as I missed yesterday’s drama on the Goodwins, see http://hmcoastguard.blogspot.com/2011/01/five-airlifted-from-grounded-yacht.html

There are a fair few pages of the book I publish about Ramsgate lifeboat’s rescues here http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/storm/index.htm

Back to yesterday’s rescue, I gather the crew were quite indignant about being lifted off in fairly calm weather from a sandbank, that is until the tide came back in and “The Shippe Swallower” swallowed it.

Another chunk of a book about the Goodwin Sands here http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/GoodwinSands/index.htm
