Just found this on FaceBook this morning. It was posted on a Russian language sailing club page. The caption said it is "somewhere near Somalia".

Hi,
The place is off Greenville (Liberia).
The ship is OPTIMIST (Mlt / 1971 / 5970 / 7110529), attacked and set on fire, 01 may 1993 during civil War.
The wreck with his 120 T tripod mast is visible on Google Earth, in position 04 59 41 N / 009 02 24 W.
Regards,
Yvon

I'm surprised the 'elff and safety people haven't been over there and put tape round it.
