HONDA TRAGEDY

Tragedy at Honda

The year was 1923.  On a foggy September night seven Naval Destroyers went aground off Pt. Pedernales, known locally as Honda Point.  Assuming they were entering the Santa Barbara Channel, the ships turned left directly into the rocky coastline.  In reality the ships were far north of the entrance to the channel.  Visit the links below for photos and more information:
