CONCORDIA was on a voyage from Hamburg in Germany to Honolulu in Hawaii when she was forced to put into Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for repairs which cost the then huge sum of £5,300. She was thirty-five days out from Rio de Janeiro, presumably near the Falkland Islands, when she foundered and sank. The Stanley Shipping Register states that the crew of the CONCORDIA arrived in Stanley on 18th October 1860, but no other vessel was recorded as having arrived in Stanley on that date. It may be assumed therefore that the crew rowed into Stanley in the ship’s lifeboats.
