This is something that I have wanted to write for several years, but only a few months ago managed to find enough information to create a story from.
Imagine a sailing ship leaving England on her first voyage in the early 1900’s, during what was to become the last true days of sail.
On her voyage to Australia, the cargo catches fire more than once, and the crew spent over a month trying to put the fires out, while all the time at sea in the Atlantic.
It’s a fateful voyage, as on her return voyage the ship hits a reef on a small island in The Pacific and sinks.
The ship and it’s voyage have virtually passed into history, and there is virtually no information about it on the internet.
I only know about the voyage and the name of the ship because I have a paper that mentions the shipwreck, and this was the first voyage that my grandfather took as a young sailor.
I hope to have the story completed in the coming weeks.
If you like stories of sailing ships and shipwrecks, then I hope this will be right up your alley.
