During the morning of Monday April 17th 1995 whilst on passage from Jersey to Sark, the French catamaran Saint-Malo struck a rock known as Le Frouquie, 900 metres north of La Corbière Lighthouse. Visibility was good at the time, but with a Spring tide ebbing to the west and a westerly Force 5 wind, the sea conditions near Corbière were moderate to rough.

Emergency services responded promptly and nearby ships gave assistance. All 307 passengers and crew were saved from the partially submerged vessel.

This memorial is erected in thanksgiving and as a tribute to the rescue, which with the help of God and of amany strong arms, ensured the safe return of all on board.
