Description

Alexander Yeats The Alexander Yeats, carrying timber from Georgia (USA) to Devonport, came aground on 17 September 1896. Her cargo had shifted in a gale, making her more difficult to control. Gurnard's Head is in the background. She was launched as a full-rigger and, although her 19 crew were all rescued, she did not sail again.
