With reference to my first article on the wreck of the Telamon in the August 2009 issue of Sea Breezes.
I revisited the wreck of the Telamon which still lies in a small bay next to the Port of Arrecife, Lanzarote, on Friday 29 December 2017. My last visit to the wreck was on 3 March 2009 (some 9 years ago). To my amazement, very little has changed about her and it is as if time has just stood still. For this wreck, which has been there for some 39 years now, is still quietly rusting away in the bay. Even the wooden boat that is on the shore is still there, which makes a good photograph to anyone wishing to capture the Telamon.
I would also like to say that anyone who likes taking photographs of shipwrecks; this must be one of the best ones in the world. The bay gives you so many angles to take of the wreck and is also a very quiet place to visit.
For those who wish to know the history of the Telamon, she was first named Temple Hall in 1954. In 1969, she was bought and renamed Pantelis. A few years later, after a change of ownership, she was renamed Telamon. She was wrecked after a storm and still lies in the same spot today. Above are two photos which I took.
