Coal ship wrecked off Chinamans Beach?

Mosman Council’s Senior Environment Officer asks:

"I’ve often been told of the sinking of a coal ship off Chinamans Beach – which explains the fine coal that always gets washed up on the sand there. But there is no record in Local Studies of such a ship ever sinking there. Now I am wondering if it is just a robust Mosman myth, or if other people actually have more detailed information about it?"

Do you know this story?
