Sailboat Washes Ashore as Dangerous Currents Lash Gulf Coastline

A sailboat washed ashore on Pensacola Beach, as dangerous weather conditions hit Florida’s northwest coastline on June 19.

Footage shared by X user @tornadoalliewx shows a boat described as the “Lady Catherine” washed up on the beach on Wednesday morning.

A Facebook post from Alleycat Michael on June 3 claims that his sailboat, the Lady Catherine, was “adrift and heading toward Florida” after he was forced to abandon it when the crew hit unexpected storms between Key West and Texas.

The National Weather Service warned of life-threatening rip currents, high surf and minor coastal flooding through to Thursday, as dangerous weather conditions continued. Credit: @tornadoalliewx via Storyful
