At Land's Point the coastguards spied a ship's punt, containing three men, a mile off, and rapidly being driven shorewards before the heavy seas. They summoned a rocket brigade four miles away.. Just as the brigade reached the top of the cliff, the boat was caught by a huge wave and dashed on the rocks. It smashed to pieces, and the crew disappeared in the mountainous seas.

It is believed that the men formed part of the crew of the steamer

Arnside, of Sunderland," which, is supposed tol have foundered with all hands.

The three-masted cargo steamer My Own, laden with cement, was struck by heavy seas and the hatches smashed. Water poured into the holds,' and she sank off Shoreham. The crew of eight i were, drowned.
