ABSTRACT
One dark night in June, 1984, a blinding `bullseye' squall struck competitors in the 1984 Tall Ships Race. The US Coast Guard's steel-hulled barque, the `Eagle' survived with only minor injuries to crew members. But tragedy struck for the less prepared schooner `Marques' which sank that night. Only 9 of the 28-member crew survived.
