Skipper Christopher Lee Jarman admits trawler grounding charge

The skipper of a fishing boat that ran aground near Canterbury’s Lake Ellesmere has admitted he failed to ensure a proper look-out was kept. The 22-metre Lady Sarah grounded on Kaitorete Spit in December 2016 and remained on the shingle shore for two weeks before it was broken into pieces and moved to a contractor’s yard. Skipper Christopher Lee Jarman, 35, of Heathcote Valley, pleaded guilty on Thursday to failing to keep the look-out and causing unnecessary danger or risk to property or persons, including the crew. >click to read< 10:44
