On the morning of Sunday, 2 June 1940 the WINGA collided with the 1289-ton Norwegian steamer JERNLAND (1905: Havorsen Shipping Co., A/S, Bergen). The WINGA sank almost immediately, five miles east of West Hartlepool. The WINGA was sailing independently and carrying a cargo of iron ore from Sandander, Spain for the Tyne. The JERNLAND picked up eight survivors and landed them at theTees.

It was badly damaged and had to be dry-docked. Fourteen crewman, including the Master, were lost when the WINGA went down.
