Back to New Jersey


By Sindia S.
New Jersey, Age 15

The Sindia first set sail in 1901. No passengers were on it except the crew. It was going from Bayonne, New Jersey to Kobe, Japan and back to New York. On this four mast ship there was a Jappenese cabin boy. Then on one dark stormy night in December there was a Nor-Easter. So Captain Macensi thougt the Sindia was in New York habor. So on that stormy night the ship ran aground. It was really stuck in the sand.The next morning a tugboat came and tried to pull out the Sindia but then it tor into half. Today it is still there in Ocean City but under the sand. And that is the Sindia. AND THAT PROVES NEVER GO ON A SHIP MADE BY HARLAND AND WOLF!
