Wrecks: Lina (22)


This iron steamship was built in 1879 in Great Britain, at a time when iron steamships had already won the race against sailboats. It sailed the entire Mediterranean and up to northern Europe transporting oil and wine from the Italian province of Puglia, and brining back coal from Cardiff on the return voyage. On the night of 14.01.1914, because of thick fog, the ship lost its way while navigating through the Vela Vrata Channel. A heavy storm caused the ship to run aground near Cape Pečen on Cres Island, where it quickly sank.
