22/10/1707 Association HMS [+1707] wreck
Association HMS [+1707]HMS Association was a 96-gun second-rate ship of the line, launched at Portsmouth dockyard in 1697. She served as the flagship of Sir Clowdisley Shovell in the Mediterranean during the War of the Spanish Succession and was involved in several engagements, including the capture of Gibraltar in 1704. Commanded by Captain Edmund Loades, she was returning from the Mediterranean with Sir Clowdisley on board in late October 1707. Legend has it that on the fateful night of October 22, Sir Clowdisley was repeatedly warned by his fellow officers that his judgement of the ships´ longitudinal position was incorrect. One account even claims that Sir Clowdisley ignored the advice of a seaman with knowledge of the Isles of Scilly who asserted that the fleet must be several miles off course because he could distinctly detect burning kelp in the air - a smell which was at the time so synonymous with the archipelago. The vessel smashed into the Gilstone Rocks, Isles of Scilly and sank. Like HMS Association, Firebrand also smashed into the Gilstone, but unlike the unfortunate flagship she was lifted off by a huge wave. Crippled and leaking, her commanding officer, Captain Francis Piercy, was guided by St Agnes´s blazing light - at the time the only such warning in all of Scilly. Piercy steered Firebrand between St Agnes and Annet, but she sank close to Menglow Rock, losing 28 of her crew of 40. The sole survivor from the other three ships was George Lawrence, who had worked as a butcher before joining the crew of Romney as quartermaster. Sir Clowdisley Shovell´s name has become synonymous with an act of arrogant bloody-mindedness that led not only to his own death, but that of 1,500 other sailors. Whether that view is an accurate portrayal of his role in the 1707 disaster is hardly relevant. The fact is, rightly or wrongly, Sir Clowdisley has gone down in history as the man who lost HMS Association, plus Eagle, Romney and Firebrand.

22/10/1805 Santisima Trinidad (+1805) wreck
Santisima Trinidad (+1805) Santisima Trinidad; 1st Rate; 140 cannons; 4.950 bm; 220.5x58.3x28.75 ft; Built in 1769 by Mateo Mullan, Havana. Santisima Trinidad took part in the Battle of Trafalgar on October 21, 1805, as part of the combined Franco-Spanish fleet. Her great size and position immediately ahead of the fleet flagship Bucentaure made her a target for the British fleet, and she came under concentrated attack by several ships. She lost her mast and eventually surrendered to the Neptune, commanded by Captain Thomas Fremantle. She was taken in tow by the Prince, but sank in a storm the day after the battle.

22/10/1951 Pandora SS [+1951] wreck
Pandora SS [+1951] During a fierce NNE gale a distress rocket fired from a small coaster was seen by the Staithes coastguard. The alarm was raised but the raging sea prevented the Whitby, Runswick and Redcar lifeboats from being launched. The steamer GRIPFAST, later renamed PITSA, was nearby and approached the striken vessel to find the PANDORA labouring badly and shipping heavy seas. At 7.30am the GRIPFAST came alongside and the crew of the PANDORA launched a small lifeboat on the lee-side, this capsized and sank. They tried to launch another boat on the windward side but this too proved impossible. The master of the GRIPFAST had oil poured on to the water to ease the fury of the sea, the idea was for the crew to jump into the sea, but no one would jump. In the next attempt the GRIPFAST came close alongside and lines where thrown on to the PANDORA. Two of these were caught, but the men who caught them were so distressed and exhausted that they could not hold on. The two vessels were side by side for only a few minutes and as they drifted apart, the PANDORA slipped slowly aft around the port quarter of the GRIPFAST colliding with the aft end of the GRIPFAST and damaging her propeller and thrust block. Helplessly the crew watched as the PANDORA listed to port and settled down with the seas and sank. Men were seen in the water drifting with the wreckage but the GRIPFAST was too damaged to manoeuvre and they could not be saved. The weather was getting worse and the GRIPFAST radioed for a tug to tow her to Hartlepool. A body and a good deal of wreckage from the PANDORA was washed ashore at Saltwick Nab the following day. Three more bodies, including that of the Captain, came ashore to the east of Whitby soon after. Two others were never found. A local controversy raged for many months afterwards. An inquiry was held into the decision made by the lifeboat service and this resulted in much bitterness between crews, forcing the closure of the Runswick Station and a mass resignation of the Whitby crew.

22/10/1917 Novillo SS [+1917] wreck
Novillo SS [+1917]The s.s. NOVILLO was on passage from South Shields to Blaye following the war channel off Whitby, when she was instructed by a patrol vessel to go outside the line of buoys. At 3.00 p.m. she was making 8 knots in a position about 1 mile SSE of the “T” buoy when she was struck by a torpedo without warning. The torpedo struck on the starboard side in the engine room and killed the second Engineer and 3 fireman in the explosion. There was an immediate inrush of water and she sank rapidly. Part of the crew got away in the port lifeboat and the remainder including the master ran out of time and were forced to jump overboard to be picked up by the lifeboat. The patrol vessel MINUS picked up the survivors and landed them at Scarborough. The NOVILLO had been flying the Danish Ensign which was also painted on the ship’s side.

22/10/1904 Crane FV (+1904) wreck
Crane FV (+1904) DOGGER BANK INCIDENT The British trawler Crane was sunk in the Dogger Bank incident, where the Imperial Russian Baltic navy, on her 31.000 km voyage from the Baltic to Japan, mistook a fleet of British fishermen for the Japanese navy and attacked them. The bad aiming of the Russians only sank one trawler, Crane on which 2 of the crew were killed. The incident nearly led to a war between Russia and Britain. During the incident, Russian ships even shot at each other and the cruiser Aurora was damaged. The drunken Captain on the Kamchatka seems to have been the one who reported to the fleet that they were attacked by Japanese torpedoboat, which in fact was a Swedish ship passing by.
