Sloop June ~ 11 August 1899

Annual Report of the Operations of the United States Life-Saving Service for the fiscal year ending June 30 1900:

Stranded on south side of bar while trying to enter inlet. Life saving crew pulled alongside and found the sloop in a bad condition, being full of water and the surf breaking over her continually. They took off the crew of three men and carried them to station, but nothing could be done to save the sloop, and she soon broke up. The shipwrecked crew were provided with dry clothing from the stores of the Women’s National Relief Association, and were succored at the station until the next afternoon.
