Voyage of Titanic Proportions
Either a case of the worst luck in history or the best

•  In 1829, a ship called The Mermaid was four days away from her destination of Sydney, Australia, when a massive storm struck and drove the ship into a reef. All twenty-two people on board survived and were able to swim to safety.

•  Three days later, the Swiftsure rescued them.

•  Five days later, the Swiftsure sank.

•  Victims from both ships were rescued by the schooner Governor Ready.

•  Three hours later, the Governor Ready caught fire.

•  The Comet pulled everyone from lifeboats and brought them aboard.

•  Five days later, the Comet sank. The crew went for help in a longboat, leaving the passengers floating in the water.

•  Eighteen hours later, the mail boat Jupiter pulled everyone out of the ocean.

•  In under twelve hours, the Jupiter sank.

•  Everyone was rescued by the passenger vessel The City of Leeds.

•  Four days later, The City of Leeds docked in Sydney, Australia.

The bad news was that five ships were lost.
The good news was that not a single person died.
