01/04/1813 Oscar SV (+1813) wreck
Oscar SV (+1813)On the morning of the 1st of April, 1813, five whaling vessels were riding at anchor in the roads when a sudden tempest came on from the South East. Two of the ships weighed and stood out to sea; but as part of the crew of one, the ill-fated OSCAR, had been left ashore, she was obliged to put about and keep near the land. By the time that all her men were on board she was far inshore. Meantime the wind had died away, and from the heavy roll of the sea, and a strong tide setting in, she was unable to clear the Girdleness. Soon after the gale sprang up with increased violence; it was accompanied with a dense shower of snow, and now blew from the North.Eeast. The vessel in vain endeavoured to ride it out; and after dragging her anchor she was driven ashore in the Greyhope on a large reef. The tremendous sea which broke over her threatened instant destruction, and the only hope of safety for the crew was that of effecting a communication with the land. For this purpose the mainmast was hewed down in such a manner as that it might fall towards the beach; but it dropped alongside the vessel. A number of the seamen who had clung to the rigging were hurled into the sea along with it, many were swept from the deck, and others who attempted to swim to the land were borne down by the floating wreck or overwhelmed by the fury of the surf. Only the forecastle now remained above water, and for a short time the Master and three sailors were observed upon it, imploring that assistance which none could give. Of a crew of forty-four men only two were saved.
