Another perspective of the wreck location from the side.
Local fisherman still use the beach today for their boats. Most of them did not know that they were in some places walking over history as Le Dragon was buried by seven feet of sand.
The bow is only 15 metres from the waters edge. During the last hour of the battle the 18 gun Le Dragonwas firing her bow chasers which were removed and located on the after deck, at the two English ships.
Looking at the end of the wreck from directly in front of the wreck one can easily see the ship beached on the sandy shore.
