City of Ghent wreck

Categories: Tags: ,

The City of Ghent was a 616 ton, 64m long motor vessel. It hit Black Head but managed to get off, it was taking in water and started to list, then sank near the Lizard point on 15/11/1953.

It now lies upside down and although the superstructure has collapsed, it is reasonably intact. An excellent dive where tide timings are important. Maximum depth is around 35m.
