  • Conqueror ( United Kingdom): A Grimsby trawler on her first voyage after a major refit, went ashore at Penzer Point, south of Mousehole, Cornwall. It is believed the crew were down below having breakfast and the trawler was on automatic pilot! The Penlee Lifeboat had insufficient power to tow the Conqueror off the rocks and she assumed a 35° list and broke up on the rocks.[13]
