Assateague, VA Steam Yacht Loses Anchors in Storm, Jan 1912


Corsair Loses Two Anchors and Appeals to Life-Savers.

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 6.---The steam yacht Corsair, owned by J. P. Morgan, of New York City, had a hard tussle with a wild gale, lost two anchors and a chain and had to call on the Assateague, Va. The life-savers reached the Corsair and anchored her in a safe place. The schooner Alberta, supposed to have been on a trip from Virginia to New York, went ashore in Assateague harbor last night during the gate. The vessel is leaking but the crew remained aboard.
