 Did you get any other pics? Going by the growth on the hull, it doesn't look too old so that scrubs out a couple of Round the world racers that were lost last year. Was it timber or glass?

very strange find.

That is a rather frightening find

When you come across something like that it raises the hair on the back of your neck, what else you may find floating in the debris field. Not a good thing to find.

Has anyone heard anything further about this wreck, it just seems a bit strange that there has been nothing on the news about it.
