The Wreck of Sarah

The Sarah is Anguilla’s largest wreck – it is 70 meters (232 feet) in length, it is intact and upright on the bottom making it an attraction worth venturing out to. The wreck is located off Sandy Ground in 10-25 meters (30-83 feet) of water. Like many other shipwrecks strewn about around the island’s waters, this ship was a victim of Hurricane Klaus; she sank onto her side in Sandy Ground as the hull filled with sand and became salvageable only as a dive site. Six months after she sank, she was raised and towed to her present resting place. The wreck is completely intact, and stands upright. Large openings in the hull allow divers access to the three holds.
