Story of Sinking: Russian ship (galiott or galeass), skipper Luder Ehlers, was en route from St. Petersburg to Riga, and started leaking near Kronstadt in a big storm. The ship was anchored six versts from the shore, but the storm pulled it loose and blew ashore near Toolse, where it broke apart. The captain, four crewmembers and two passengers were saved. The wreck was near the entrance to the port and was obstructing traffic. Cargo and parts of the rigging were saved.
