100 year old ship sunk on a Cornish beach uncovered by recent storms

We finally got ourselves over to Booby's Bay this afternoon at low tide to witness this phenomenal sight. The 100 year old German war ship was thought to have been impounded in Cardiff at the start of the first world war and being towed to London to be scrapped. The 60ft 'SV Carl' broke it's tow lines and ended up here, near Trevose Head in Cornwall. Although some parts have previously been exposed at low tide, it has never before been seen to this extent.

An original photo of the SV Carl can be found in the following article
