Wreck of a Dannish cargo ship West Star. She went on her last cruise on a 25th october 1971 under the command of capt. Erik Olsen. She was carring wood from Gdansk to England. At 02:55 CET she send "may day..." because of enlarging list. At 8 in the morning of Friday 30th, after batlle for the ship that last many hours, capt. Erik Olsen abandoned the ship as the last.

Wreck lies few kilometres from Stilo, 150 m from the shore at 2,5 m. Due to bad conditions (great!) I wasn't able to swim to her (strong back-set currents). Next time I will post better pics!
