On June 6 1765, the Pollux and Het Hof in Souburg left Hellevoetsluis. The visibility was very poor on 7 June. The Hof in Souburg came too close to the island of Schouwen and got stuck at the Oosterbank / point of Schouwen. Moments later, the Pollux also got stuck. The Souburg could come loose again, but not the Pollux. The crew had to leave the ship. In the coming days, as much as possible was saved from the Pollux equipage.
