The Loss of the Herzogin Cecilie

by John P. Creswell | Paperback, 32 pages

The famous Finnish windjammer, Herzogin Cecilie, four times winner of the annual Australian Grain race, was perhaps the most magnificent sailing ship ever to be wrecked on the South Hams Coast. The story of her grounding off Soar Mill Cove in April 1936 and her subsequent loss in Starehole Bay is told in this fully illustrated book.
