Yes she did hit the beach at 19kts, on the second attempt. The first run didn't work & all they did was knock a hole in another ship. But she's there now. My brother emailed me some pics of her on the beach. He was the 2nd officer for the trip from UK to the breakers. Once I've worked out how to resize the pics I'll post them
