Boat on fire just off Shoreham Nr Brighton

A £400,000 yacht caught fire off the coast yesterday and could be seen for miles as the coast guard and other boats went out to rescue the stricken vessel. Apparently there were 6 people on board and all were unhurt. This photo was taken from the coast in Hove.More pictures and the full story can be found here.

  1. oh my! at least they're safe... so impressionant your photo!

  2. When I saw your photo, I was thinking at first, oh, a tornado in UK!
    But it was still a bad thing.
    Fortunately people are safe.

    Nice week to you and your family!

  3. i thought of tornado too.
    it's lucky they escaped on time.

  4. Fires on board ships seem to be happening more frequently these days.

  5. can't imagine what the people on board were feeling......

  6. I know it's unbelievable - there was a tornado here last year - pics on this blog.

    There are some pretty spectacular pics of the boat on the argus website (link).

    Still waiting to hear how it happened
