I Also learned that the 1984 Tall Ship Event was Mared With Tradgedy.  Wikipedia Tells us about the loss of the Marques.

The Marques won the first tall ships’ race, from Puerto Rico to Bermuda. The ship left Hamilton on the second race, bound for HalifaxNova Scotia, on 2 June 1984. On the night of 2 June the ship ran into a gale. In the early hours of 3 June she was hit by a sudden squall and a large wave, possible arogue wave, and was knocked down onto her starboard side. Although the ship had been converted to a sail training and charter cruise ship, she had retained the main cargo hatch from her days as a commercial vessel. When she was knocked down the main hatch was breached and water flooded into the interior of the ship. She sank in less than a minute, with the loss of 19 of her 28 crew members.
