Wreck of the NORA, Anglesea, NJ – 1906 Operated by Captain Herbert Shivers, the "NORA" was a one of several gasoline powered motor sloops that sailed regularly from Anglesea, NJ to the local fishing banks. On July 29, 1906, while returning early from the fishing grounds because of sudden foul weather, she capsized while crossing Hereford Inlet Bar with thirty passengers, two crewmembers and Captain Shivers aboard. Members of the U.S. Life Saving Service station at Hereford Inlet responded to the scene and saved many lives, but despite their efforts, nine of passengers aboard the "NORA" perished. A few hours later on the same day, the motor sloop "ALVA B." also capsized and lost one of her passengers. In 1917, Anglesea became part of the City of North Wildwood, NJ. In 1915, the U.S. Life Saving Service joined with the U.S. Revenue Cutter Service (the oldest armed maritime service in the U.S.) to form the U.S. Coast Guard.
