Name: Black Arrow
Nationality : United States
The Black Arrow was part of the spoils of war taken by the Allies from the Germans at the end of the first world war. It was covering the Havana – Bilbao route with 630 tons of general cargo, 52 passengers and 113 crew. It was ailing in the middle of a dense fog, at half-speed and sounding continually, until the sounding equipment broke, running aground at As Pías on 9 August 1929.
The rescue was carried out without problems due to good weather, and the boat was also recovered after some on-site repairs.
