Cassandra : Enthusiastically Raced Around Galicia, Spain
It is rumoured that in 1984, five years before the fall on the Berlin wall, Zincala was being sailed by a man escaping from East Germany, bound for the Caribbean. A storm resulted in the boat retreating from the Atlantic into the Muros inlet in north-west Spain, there to remain anchored and semi-marooned for six years until acquired by her current owners, the Pazó brothers.


The change of name to Cassandra would seem to be tied in with the boat being used in 2012 in the filming of Cassandra staring Nacho Garbe
