A BROKEN-UP hull found washed up on Borth beach was from an Irish vessel which sunk off Wexford in June.

Borth coastguard were paged at 11am on Sunday, 5 November, following reports of an upturned boat on the beach below the monument.

On further investigation, it was found to be a piece of hull approximately seven feet long and eight feet wide.

The hull, which carried the name ‘Inis Mór’, contained the vessel’s steering gear and had been washed onto the beach by the morning’s spring high tide.

Photographs were sent to Milford Haven coastguard, who confirmed the hull was a piece of the Scottish–owned Ker 39, reported to have sunk off the coast of Wexford following an onboard fire in June.

‘Inis Mor’ was on its way to the Irish Cruiser Racer Association (ICRA) National Championships that begin at Royal Cork Yacht Club, in Cork Harbour.

Borth coastguard were paged again at 11.13am on Monday, 6 November, to try and secure the stern section of ‘Inis Mór’.

Five ropes were attached and secured to large rocks on the beach, while recovery of the vessel is organised.

The hull will be removed by the council, coastguards said.
