The 183,572 dwt South Korean motor ore/oil vessel Daeyang Family
was on a voyage from the Brazilian port of Sepetiba to Pohang,
when she was wrecked on Whale Rock in the Robben Island area
8 miles of Cape Town, in lat 33.50.01S, long 18.23.09E
on March 30, 1986, after dragging her anchors in very bad weather.
All her 28 crew members were safely taken off by helicopter.
The Daeyang Family had previously sustained damaged
to her bottom due to heavy weather
and had deviated to Cape Town for repairs,
anchoring off the coast earlier the same day as she was wrecked.
