One of three very fine sisters, all of which went on to have extended careers in the Med.

Agreed Andy, and for my money the best of them was Senlac! Derek

Of course the other sister Henquist found herself beached during a storm in the 70's I guess.

Unless she did it on more than one occasion, that would have been the night of the 'Great Storm' or 'Hurricane' in October 1987, Alan. Hengist ended up on The Warren near Folkestone.

You are right meechingman it was the 87 storm. Should have looked it up rather than relying on my memory!!

Alan

As meechingman has already pointed out, I am sure that you meant HENGIST :-)

The HENGIST run agound on the Warren near to Folkstone on the 15 October 1987 during the ''Great Storm'' or ''Hurricane'' of 1987, here is an interesting link to the grounding.

And a link showing the former HENGIST in Greek waters as the AGIOS GEOGIOS.

A bit of history regarding the names of the three sisters.

The HENGIST and HORSA were named after legendary brothers said to have led the Angles, Saxons and Jutes in their invasion of Britain in the 5th century.

SENLAC on the other hand was named after the location where Harold Godwinson deployed his army for the battle of Hastings on the 14 October 1066, it is situated near to what is now the town of Battle, East Sussex.

Whilst I was working for British Channel Island Ferries we had looked into acquiring either the HENGIST or HORSA to replace the ROZEL after her charter from Cenargo had expired in 1991. The lack of cabins was the reason we didn't pursue either vessel and instead we got the former REINE MATHILD from our parent company Brittany Ferries.
