Herzogin Cecilie nearing Falmouth, Cornwall
The Herzogin Cecilie, a German four mast barque (Windjammer), named after German Crown Princess Duchess Cecilie of Mecklenburg-Schwerin (1886-1954), nearing Falmouth, Cornwall, after one of her many races round the world. On her final race in 1936 she ran onto some rocks, was beached near Salcombe, and was gradually broken up by the waves. The remains are still on the seabed."
