"Belle Andrea" runs aground at Misty Cliffs, 1 July 2014

Owner/Skipper is a Hout Bay local, who has owned the boat only a few months. He was not hurt and managed to beach the yacht without much damage on the sand - somehow clearing a good number of rocks. I am not sure what the circumstances were for this mishap but glad he is ok. The yacht - one of the older Flamenca 25s, was en route from Hout Bay to Simonstown.

It will be interesting to see if the hull can be refloated as there is no chance of vehicle access to this point. Fortunately we are near neap tide currently....
