Tanker Aground

A tanker ran Aground on Cayman Brac. No fuel spill, but reef damage. Read the article HERE. In the old days, there were more shipwrecks. In 1794, ten ships that were part of a convoy on its way from Jamaica to England wrecked on the reef at the east end of Grand Cayman. Local residents braved the stormy waters and successfully rescued the ships’ crews and passengers.

The King of England granted The Cayman Islands tax immunity in thanks. That’s why we’re tax free today!

Have a great day!
