Pamir was originally launched in Hamburg in 1905, she had a steel hull, a tonnage of 3020 gross, an overall length of 375 feet, a beam of 46 feet and a loaded draught of 24 feet. Her three masts stood 168 feet above the deck and the main yard was 92 feet wide. She carried a total of 50,000 square feet of sails and could reach a top speed of 16 knots.
Accounts of this disaster abound on internet websites, but my personal memories of this event are from being an engineer crew member of RMS Rangitane, which sailed from Southampton near that day bound for New Zealand, via Panama, and our ship picked up Pamir’s distress call while entering the Bay of Biscay…
We had a three-foot long model of the Pamir when I was a child. I believe it was given as a present to my family from the man who made it. He came from a line of Åland seafarers, Åland being perhaps the most prominent part of Finland that was engaged in ocean shipping in the days of sail.
