MARIA ASUMPTA, GOUELIOU AR MOR 1992, BREST, BRO LEON

MARIA ASUMPTA, ’92 MARITIME FESTIVAL, BREST, BRITTANY

The Brick Maria Asumpta was built in 1858 by Pica from Badalona (Catalunya). This 38m long ship was very popular during European maritime festivals. It was the oldest tall ship still sailing.

31 may 1995 : she ran aground and broke up on the north Cornish coast, near Padstow, and sank in a few minutes. Three of her sixteen crew were lost.

I wanted to post this picture a few days ago, but when I looked for some information about the ship, I discovered its tragic destiny. It’s the reason why I choose today as a tribute to her lost crew.
