The Ayr United Strollers took a new route this week as they visited Newton Park before heading down towards Newton Beach. The group stopped for a photo with the wreckage of the Kaffir boat in the background.
Built in 1944 the Kaffir was stolen from the harbour on the 23rd September 1974 and can be seen at low tide. 118 tons of coal was salvaged however the boat couldn’t be saved. Accusations were flying that certain individuals within the group were the perpetrators however no evidence could be found!
