Boat Wrecks of Hoo

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

The Hoo Peninsula of Kent, England separates the Thames and Medway rivers. Along the River Medway there lies a boat graveyard formed of sunken vessels. One of those is the 111-year-old Sailing Barge Ena, a ship that sailed as part of Operation Dynamo in World War II - the 1940 call from Winston Churchill for civilian boats to sail to Dunkirk and rescue the trapped British army. This was considered a pivotal moment in the war, as it preserved Britain's fighting capacity against Nazi Germany.
