Sara Cathryn Stevenson PZ753

Seen in Mounts Bay 31st August 2007 having left Newlyn for the last time on her way to the scrap yard at New Holland on the River Humber. She left the harbour and steamed across the bay, but turned round halfway across and came back as she is seen doing here. She was then met by one of the harbour boats near Sandy Cove before steaming off.
