HMS Condor

The HMS Condor was one of six built of the 10 gun Condor class in the years 1898 and 1900. Although she was considered a sloop the class was rigged as a barque or sometmes as a barquentine.
The ship served in the Pacific ocean but was lost with all hands in a storm in December of 1901 at the entrance of the Juan de Fuca Strait while on her way to Hawaii.
