Pallas wrecked at Stalsberget on the south side of Jeløya outside Moss 18.November 1919. The barque was on a journey from Leith in Scotland to Kristiania with a cargo of 830 tons of coal. The night before the accident it blew up to a gale with strong winds and snow, and with heavy thoughts about all the mines that still floated around in the North sea after the Great War, the crew had enough to think about for their next journey. The weather conditions was getting worse during the evening and night and four o'clock the following morning Pallas hit drifted and hit ground on Sauetogrunne outside Stalsberget. In the following weeks cargo and inventory was salvaged, but the wreck was abandoned. There isn't much left of her today, and the few scattered remains rest in the bay of Stalsberget on a depth of 15 to 20 meter.
