Nord

Tasmania

The steamer Nord ran aground 7.November 1915 under a journey from Melbourne to Hobart with fuel and went down the following day. She was built in Scotland in 1900 under the name Maria Goriainova for Russian owners. She changed owners a couple of times before she ended up sailing for the Anglo-Saxon Petroleum Company in Shanghai. In the morning 7.November 1915 she hit ground between Cape Hauy and Needle Rock, but they managed to continue towards Cape Pillar. It soon became clear that she was doomed and they anchored up in Munro Bay, where she sank the following day. The wreck rest today on a depth of 30 to 42 meter.
