The Goldstone Rock has been a serious hazard to shipping over the years; it was not buoyed in the old days and is so small and so far from land that most ships’ crews would have been unaware of it until it was too late. The Northern Yacht sailed from Newcastle down to North Shields where three passengers embarked. She then left the Tyne for Leith at 0900 hrs on Thursday morning; however – and incidentally – the master’s dog refused to go on board just before she sailed. The dog was beaten and put on board the ship, but it jumped ashore and ran away, adopting another vessel to sail on. After leaving the Tyne, the Northern Yacht called into North Sunderland (now Seahouses) to put a passenger ashore, even though the master was not very happy to do so because of the prevailing storm force winds. The steamer had on board somewhere in the region of ten passengers and 13 crew, including a stewardess, the only woman, and 10-15 tons of iron which was being transported on the deck. The lighthouse keeper of the Inner Farne had observed the vessel passing through the Farne Islands at 1700 hrs on the Thursday afternoon, the wind being at northwest; however, he also stated that, a perfect hurricane’ blew that same evening. Following a statement by Captain Pattinson at Spittal Custom House, who through his glass witnessed a steamer apparently in distress some distance away, about one hour after the steamer was seen to pass Holy Island, it was presumed from a further report in the Newcastle Journal that the Northern Yacht probably sank somewhere in Berwick Bay. It was stated by various newspapers of the time, including The Times, that the vessel was not in a very seaworthy condition and that the iron on her deck would have caused her to be even more unstable. Fishermen from Eyemouth reported that a fair quantity of wreckage had been driven ashore on that coast, amongst which were some long, green-painted seats, such as used on the quarter-decks of steam vessels.
