  • Description

    The Dutch 900 ton cargo-boat "Rubicon" run aground off the coast of Majorca between Punta Amer and Costa Millor in Son Servera.

    Due to a break-down in the rudder, it lost control and collided against a sand-bank. It remained leaning on the starboard side.

    The boat carried a cargo of scrap iron. The crew was saved but the rought sea opened still more and widened the leak in the vessel's hull.

    Shortly afterwards several boats arrived to the rescue.
