In Rijeka ship disembarked 500 tons of ore and 60 tons of other ship cargo. Than ship left Rijeka port and went in Jurjevo port (small port near Senj). During morning ship embarked 500 cubic meters of wood. Soon after embarkation weather got worse. Captain of ship decided to leave unsafe port of Jurjevo and ship routed to Crikvenica. Soon "Peltastis" came near Crikvenica and dropped anchors. Captain of the ship hoped that with dropped anchors and working engines would overcome storm and strong wind. But, during the night wind became stronger and sea restless with high waves. Two hours before sinking started hurricane and ship easily began to sail toward rocks of island Krk. Strength of the wind was about 200 kilometer on hour. Seem that main problem was in anchors because crew of ship probably did not know that bottom of the Crikvenica bay is full of sand. Anchors had not something to hook. So after two hours of battle with strong wind and high waves "Peltastis" hit the rocks between Silo and Klimno. On Peltastis were 12 sailors. Soon after impact sailors jumped into the sea but only 4 survived. Captain of the ship Theodoros Belesis decided to sunk with ship. After few months first divers from Crikvenica visited the ship.
