Morro Bay Shipwreck

(submitted by one of our North Coast agents)

Not what I expected to see this morning on my beach walk!

Yet, there she was- big, broken, out of place and sitting on the shore. Her name was Ingolmar; she was from Nova Scotia.

Apparently the trouble started Sunday afternoon when the sail boat began taking on water. The six member crew were all rescued by the Coast Guard, but they were unable to save the boat. It had to be left in the water, nearly sunk, and allow the tide to bring it to shore.

The professionals are now working to have the boat removed. Some locals are organizing volunteer groups to assist with picking up the scattered debris. If you would like to help- contact Noah at the Morro Bay City Council.
