ON THE ROCKS: Watch as Mallorca storms beach a luxury yacht

A SAILING yacht was left precariously perched on the Portixol rocks in Palma de Mallorca following storms which thrashed the island last night (Sunday).

Two crew members were apparently on board the 32-metre Turkish built vessel, Sila Sibiri, and managed to escape safely during the early hours of this morning.

Although it hasn’t been confirmed, it appears that following manoeuvring difficulties in the challenging conditions, the yacht drifted ashore, as it was apparently sitting at anchor.


Attempts to tow the boat off the rocks today were aborted due to the severe swell.
