    Quote from RNLI site:

    “1886 9 December saw the worst disaster in lifeboat history. Lytham, St Annes and Southport lifeboats were launched to the German barque Mexico in distress off Southport. The Lytham lifeboat, with great difficulty, rescued her crew of 12. Meanwhile, the Southport lifeboat was capsized by a heavy sea; 14 of her crew had drowned and there were only two survivors. The St Annes lifeboat was washed ashore the next day and her entire crew of 13 had drowned.”
