SCOW DAMAGED

EXPERIENCE IN STORM

PART OF SAND CARGO LOST

O.C,

WHANGAREI, this day

Huge seas were encountered by the scow Ngahau when it ran into a storm on Tuesday night when proceeding down the Northland coast with a load of sand for Auckland. A large part of the cargo was lost and damage estimated at £200 was caused to the scow. The sails of the vessel were blown to shreds, the main boom was smashed, and there were many breakages in the galley. The full impact of the gale was experienced 40 miles off Cape Brett, and the pitch blackness of the night contributed to the difficulties of those aboard. The Ngahau is now at Russell.

The scow Waikonini also lost some of her cargo of sand, but reached the shelter of the Bay of Islands shortly after the seas became really high.
