- Kurland ( Germany) collided with Deventia and sank 2 nautical miles (3.7 km) off St Catherine's Point, Isle of Wight, United Kingdom.
- The gunboat Cañonero General Concha ( Spanish Navy) (Third Class Cruiser) ran aground due to dense fog in de facto hostile Moroccan territory near Alhucemas during the Spanish Protectorate of Morocco. In an ensuing fight against Moroccan cabilas' assaulters (guerrillas) the largely outnumbered General Concha's crew of 53 managed to defend the ship throughout fifteen hours of gunfire combat until all survivors and deceased aboard were successfully evacuated to several rescuing Spanish warships, which subsequently shelled the now fleeing rebels and sank the wreck of the General Concha (repair was deemed impractical) to avoid her looting by the hostiles. The final toll for the General Concha's crew was 16 men dead, 17 injured and 11 made prisoners by the hostiles; casualties suffered by the attackers are not known.
- Susanna, on Zantman's Rock, Scilly Isles, Cornwall, United Kingdom
