Holyhead Marina.

Postby Tom Overs » Fri Mar 02, 2018 3:00 pm

Some years ago some on here may remember that Little Ship received some bow damage when I was in Holyhead Marina in Wales. Afterwards I moved Little Ship to a safer Marina.
This Marina has always suffered from East winds and last night it was hit by the Beast from the East, that's the name given to the weather that's hitting the UK hard this week.
Holyhead didn't make it through the night, here is a video of the devistation caused when. Force 12 hit the Marina.
Apparently there are 80 boats that have sunk and many that have been driven ashore. The Marina has been destroyed.

Yikes! That's terrible. It looks like the surviving boats were anchored away from the docks.

This is what Holyhead looked like before the Beast from the East.

They're going to have to rename it ... Holyshit Marina. Big bummer for all those boatowners and the marina owners too. Gheezz.
