The Jacaranda shipwreck at Qolora Mouth, Wild Coast

The Jacaranda shipwreck is near Qolora Mouth on the Wild Coast, not too far from Seagulls Beach Hotel and Trennereys Hotel.  The Jacaranda is a popular Wild Coast tourist attraction.  She ran aground in 1971 during strong winds and engine trouble, and with no load to somewhat help weigh her down.  Anchors were dropped to no avail, and The Jacaranda hit the rocks.
