Geocache Description:



Stoljećima ljudi žive duž grubih stijena obale, a kod Cornwall i Hebridi, namjerno su uništavani brodovi pomoću svjetionika kojim su ih mamili na stijene. Te bi potom pljačkali njihov teret, a vrlo često preživjele ubili. U zapadnoj Indiji i uz Atlantsku obalu Amerike. Posljednja takav zapisani događaj dogodio se 26. rujna 1817. godine, a žrtva je bilo norveški brod „Bergetta“ koja je u teretu prevozio vino, bilo uništen u Carmarthen u uvali kod Walesa. Krivci su izvedeni na suđenje, a navodi se da je stotine muškaraca i žena bilo nesvjesno zbog opijenja više od dvije trećine tereta broda.


Seit Jahrhunderten haben Menschen, welche an unwegsamen Küstenabschnitten wie Cornwall oder den Äußeren Hebriden lebten, bewusst Schiffe zerstört, indem sie Leuchtfeuer entfacht hatten, welche sie auf die Felsen führten. Die Menschen plünderten dann die Fracht und die Überlebenden wurden von den „Wreckern“ getötet. Es gab auch „Wrecker“ auf den Westindischen Inseln und entlang der Atlantikküste von Amerika. Die letzte aufgezeichnete Zerstörung fand am 26. September 1817 statt – das Opfer war eine norwegische Brigg, die eine Ladung Wein trug, als sie in der Carmarthen Bay im Süden von Wales zerstört wurde. Die Zerstörer wurden vor Gericht gestellt, und es wurde festgestellt, dass Hunderte von Männern und Frauen durch das Trinken von mehr als zwei Dritteln der Schiffsladung bewusstlos geworden waren.


For centuries people living along rough stretches of coast, such as Cornwall or the Outer Hebrides, deliberately wrecked ships by showing beacons which led them onto the rocks. The wreckers would then plunder them for their cargo, and quite often any survivors would be killed by the wreckers. there were also wreckers in the West Indies and along the Atlantic seaboard of America. The last recorded instance or wrecking occurred on September 26th, 1817; the victim was a Norwegian brig, the “Bergetta”, which was carrying a cargo of wine when it was wrecked in Carmarthen Bay, Wales. The wreckers were brought to trial, and it was stated that hundreds of men and women had been rendered unconscious through drinking more than two thirds of the ship’s cargo.
