We went on a trip to the southern most point of Africa and one of the things we were recommended to visit was to go see the shipwreck. We weren’t given much context to the ship, and it has a rather sad history. The ship was embayed on May 1815. Only 6 of 350 crew members made it to shore alive after the crash. When she sank she was carrying 100 wounded soldiers, some wealthy passengers, 22 iron cannon, two 12-pounder cannons and twenty 18 pounder carronades. The ship weighed 1498 tons was 53.8 meters long, and 13.2 meters wide, 3 decked, and 3 masted. It was built in 1794 an completed 8 trips to India and China before its crash.
