White Wings Vol I. Fifty Years Of Sail In The New Zealand Trade, 1850 TO 1900
Sixty Years Afloat.
the Euterpe At Port Chalmers.
In 1884 the Euterpe met with further trouble. In proceeding down the Channel she collided with the steamer Canadian and was compelled to put back for repairs, which occupied ten days.
In 1892 the Euterpe had another rough experience on the passage out to Port Chalmers. She sailed this time from Glasgow on August 13, and encountered severe gales right across the Southern Ocean. Her progress was also impeded by having to reduce canvas when passing through a large field of icebergs.
the Euterpe was eventually sold to Chili, when she was rigged as a barque, and again sold to the Alaska Packers' Association of San Francisco, and renamed the Star of India. The old ship was still afloat in 1923.
