On this date in 1925, the four-masted schooner, Victoria S, wrecked on Ocracoke's beach. It was one of the shipwrecks that my father remembered well. The brass ship's clock from this vessel hangs on the office wall of the Bluff Shoal Motel. There is an interesting story (Ocracoke's first automobile accident) associated with the wreck of the Victoria S. Look for it in a future Ocracoke Newsletter.
