05/10/1502 Miri (Mîrî) (+1502) wreck
On September 29, 1502 captain Gil Matoso of Vasco Da Gama's fleet spots a large merchant ship carrying Muslim pilgrims from (or to) Mecca, off Mount d'Eli (now Ezhimala Hill), off Cannanore (now Kannur), India. The ship, the MIRI, is identified as belonging to a certain al-Fanqi, one of wealthier men of Calicut. The Portuguese crew capture and plunder the ship and transfer its cargo. On October 3, 1502 on Da Gama's orders, the passengers are locked in the hold and the ship burnt and sunk by artilery. It takes several days to finally go down completely. Portuguese soldiers row around the waters on longboats mercilessly spearing survivors. The sinking of the MIRI is an act that will instantly cement Da Gama's cruel and fearsome reputation and generate a great deal of hatred for the Portuguese in India. Estimates of those killed on the Miri hover around 300.

05/10/1934 Agadir SS [+1934] wreck
Agadir SS [+1934]El caso del vapor Agadir resulta peculiar, porque no se hundió accidentalmente. Fue volado en 1934 por obreros avilesinos revolucionarios para bloquear la entrada a la Ría de Avilés. Conviene recordar que el 5 de octubre de 1934 comienza en Asturias una huelga revolucionaria, que muy pronto se convirtió en una especie de guerra civil local, con episodios de gran intensidad y violencia en todas partes. En Avilés, los revolucionarios estaban muy mal equipados y prácticamente carecían de armas (excepción hecha de las que lograban capturar a policías y guardias civiles en las trifulcas callejeras). Para hacerse una idea de la situación basta saber que los días 5 y 6 de octubre el propio alcalde tuvo que hacerse fuerte en el Ayuntamiento con Guardias Civiles, municipales, carabineros y algún marino, mientras el Comité Revolucionario instalaba su cuartel general no lejos de allí (en Sabugo). Pronto se corrió la voz de que se acercaban a Avilés tropas destinadas a sofocar el alzamiento, por tierra y por mar. Se supo que había algún plan para desembarcar soldados usando la Ría de Avilés, por lo que el mismo día 7 se decido bloquear la entrada. Para ello escogen el vapor Agadir, de la Companía de Gas y Electricidad de Barcelona. El Agadir desplazaba 1160 toneladas, medía 51,37 metros de eslora, 7,75 de manga y 3,15 de puntal. Su carga total era de 685 toneladas; fue construido en 1919. En aquel momento se encontraba en puerto después de haber descargado 300 toneladas de carbón. Según cuenta un cronista de la época, el Capitán era un vasco muy terco que se quería quedar dentro de él con un canario que tenía Se cruzó el barco en la entrada de la Ría, justo a la altura de las rocas de la Rechalda. Exactamente en ese sitio había naufragado en 1911 otro barco, el Cabo de Palos. Primero se intentó llevar a cabo el hundimiento abriendo las válvulas interiores del barco pero, como el proceso resultaba demasiado lento, se decidió emplear métodos más expeditivos. Colocaron explosivos, de los que sí disponían en abundancia, en la bodega del barco, y éste se fue a pique rápidamente con una importante vía de agua.
