With bad weather forecast, the small 1990 grt coaster anchored in Kinsale outer harbour. However, the high spring tide, combined with severe gales on the morning of Thursday October 28, led to the SEEBRISE dragging her anchor. She was washed ashore just south of Charles Fort where she proved a great attraction for locals and late season holiday makers. Initially there was some concern about pollution, as there was a pungent smell of engine oil was noticeable. However, no significant leak developed and fortunately she was refloated on the Friday morning tide.
