Footnotes

  • Built by Rickmers, Bremen, for Norddeutcher Lloyd and launched in 1902, Hertzogin Cecilie was seized in Chile during WW1. In 1920 she was sold by the French to Gustav Erikson of Marieham, Finland, who was building up a fleet of the last surviving square riggers, mainly for the grain trade from Australia. A fast vessel, she won the so called "Grain Race" to Europe eight times. After the race in 1936, whilst on passage to Ipswich from Falmouth in dense fog, she struck rocks off Bolt Head and later sank at the mouth of the Kingsbridge estuary near Salcombe. The wreck may still be seen there today.
