The sunken yacht reported last month as a navigation hazard is, as of this writing, even more of a navigational hazard, as it is now completely submerged.

Efforts were made to raise and remove it, but the mast and rigging began to fall apart during this effort. SLASPA now has contracted with a professional salvage crew to remove the wreck. At this point, there are two markers indicating the location: a red mooring buoy to the northwest of the wreck and a white bleach bottle to the southeast. The wreck is about 1 metre below the water, and not a hazard to dinghies, but a potential hazard to any vessel with a keel of more than 2 feet.
