Azov (Schooner), aground, 25 Oct 1911
- Full Text
On October 25th. 1911 the schooner AZOV, 212 tons bound from Johnston Harbour to Chatham with lumber, became waterlogged in a squall off Pointe Aux Barques on the American shore. Capt. John McDonald and his crew of six got into the yawl boat and after an arduous trip across the lake landed safely on the shore near Goderich. The AZOV did not sink as expected but drifted north and eventually fetched up on Belcher Reef, southwest of Port Elgin where she went to pieces. The AZOV was an old craft, built at Burlington, Ont., in 1866 by J. Simpson, and was the last schooner to be lost on the Saugeen coast.
