A number of other Lloyd's underwriters took part, including a team from St Paul. On the evening of 9 October, during a heavy north-westerly gale, the Lutine was dragged by the tide onto notoriously dangerous sandbanks off the Dutch coast, where she was wrecked in the breakers, and all but one of her passengers and crew were lost. It was found tangled in the chains which had run from the ship's wheel to the rudder, and was originally left in this state before being separated and re-hung from the rostrum of the Lloyd's underwriting room.

In the Space Shuttle tried to deploy two communications satellites, Westar and Indonesia's Palapa. This failed and the satellites were lost.
