Hera Wreck

The Hera was a 4 mast 280ft long steel barque, that foundered in rough weather on the 30th January 1914. Her cargo was 30,000 British Pounds worth of nitrate from Chile, a valuable cargo for the time. When it sank in 15-18m only her masts and rigging remained above water, the crew were clinging to the wet ropes for their lives. With one whistle between them, they passed it along and blew in turn until the Falmouth lifeboat, guided by the whistle rescued the survivors.
