The main two-mile stretch of Ross Sands has actually had 31 recorded vessels wrecked or run aground on it, which must be something of a record for the British mainland: In 1824 an unknown sloop was lost with all hands. On 27 August 1837 the Newcastle-registered Thomas was wrecked with one man drowned. The Whitby schooner Euphemia was blown ashore on 29 November 1848 and one man was drowned. In 1853 an unknown sloop was lost with two of her crew when she became a total wreck after running inshore. The schooner Enterprise was wrecked with the loss of all hands on 13 November 1876. On 7 November 1890, the schooner Flower of Ross was lost with all the crew when she was blown into the shallow water of Ross Sands. Ships approaching and attempting to cross the bar at the shallow awkward entrance to Budle Bay must have been part of the problem, but the strong local currents, combined with the topography of the surrounding land and islands, must also have played their part. They cause a type of void and would have interfered with the handling of sailing vessels during the strong northeasterlies off the Ross Back Sands. For divers, one of the most interesting wrecks along this part of the coast must be the SS Coryton. She was a cargo vessel loaded with grain which sank on 16 February 1941.
