Schooner Days CCCCXIX (419)

One Garibaldi, 3 Feb 1940

In this installment the author writes of the schooner Garibaldi, blown ashore at Weller's Bay, Prince Edward County, in freezing, icing conditions. The woman cook and three sailors were taken off that same evening, leaving the captain, mate and one sailor aboard until rescue the next day. The remaining sailor, John Nelson survived, the mate, Lewis Stonehouse, died of the cold, and the captain, William McGlenn, survived but never sailed again.
