Friendship & Camaraderie

By norton
Saint-Malo rescue memorial.
The clasped hands sculptured by Derek Tristram from a piece of Jersey granite which used to be part of the Harbour wall.'The clasped hands are an age-old image which instantly comes to mind whenever one considers lifesaving,' he said. 'It signifies friendship and camaraderie.'
The plaque reads:
'During the morning of Monday April 17th 1995 whilst on passage from Jersey to Sark, the French catamaran "Saint-Malo"struck a rock known as Le Frouquie, 900 metres north of La Corbiere Lighthouse.Visibility was good at the time, but with a Spring tide ebbing to the west and a westerly Force 5 wind, the sea conditions near Corbiere were moderate to rough.Emergency services responded promptly and nearby ships gave assistance. All 307 passengers and crew were saved from the partially submerged vessel.
This memorial is erected in thanksgiving and as a tribute to the rescue, which with the help of God and of amany strongarms, ensured the safe return of all on board.'

Handheld capture with Olympus Pen E-PM1 in Dramatic scene mode.
