The Admiral Van Tromp was a Scarborough trawler that ran aground on 30/09/1976.
The exact circumstance of the accident remain a mystery as the boat was on completely the wrong course and a senior nautical surveyor at the inquest stated it appeared it was driven onto the rocks deliberately.
No-one will ever know the real reasons as the man at the wheel John ‘Scotch Jack’ Addison was killed, along with one other crew member.
The details of the accident are covered in much greater detail on the website of the Scarborough Maritime Heritage Centre
Again, check the tide tables before visiting wreck sites and needing a rescue yourself.
