Abana Ship Wreck Little Bispham

The Abana was sailing from Liverpool to Savannah, Georgia when she was caught in a storm in the Irish Sea. She was spotted at 3 pm drifting in a northwesterly direction with her sails torn to shreds. The crew mistook Blackpool Tower for a lighthouse and the ship was first spotted foundering at North Pier, and ended up drifting north and was wrecked off Little Bispham at 5 pm
