At the height of the devastating October gale of 1867, a small schooner, the Sea Clipper, was driven onto a reef at Spotted Island, Labrador.

Already seriously damaged from an earlier collision with another schooner, she was being pounded to pieces by the raging sea. The twenty-seven people on board faced certain doom.
