Fleetwood Shipwrecked

Very sad news today from Jack van Ommen – he was shipwrecked near Ibiza and Fleetwood was lost. Miraculously, Jack was able to get ashore unharmed.

He was laying ahull in very heavy weather in the aftermath of a force 9-10, storm waiting for daylight to attempt Ibiza harbor. Fleetwood failed to clear the end of the small island of Tago Mago and was swept on to rocks on the N.E. corner of the island.
