Hello Gijsha,
My question : are you sure that : “… Dr Charcot [was] on his last expedition in the Antarctic” ?
My money : the 3 mast bark Pourquoi Pas ? --in French means why not?-- was built of wood in St. Malo (Fr.) in 1907 by a shipbuilding company under the direction of naval architect Mr. Gothier. Although this ship was owned by him, he rearmed his bark at the beginning of the WWI and participated in the war. After 1918, he explored the shores of France and the Arctic Shores.
In September 1936, returning from the mission to Greenland to deliver scientific material to Victor's mission and after carrying out a survey mission, Pourquoi-Pas? IV stopped at Reykjavík to re-provision with fuel on 13 September. They set out for Saint-Malo two days later, but on 16 September the ship was caught in a violent cyclonic storm and lost on the reefs of Álftanes at Mýrar. (Álftanes is a town and low-lying peninsula which extrudes from the eastern part of Reykjanes, located in Iceland's Capital Region).
23 of the crew were lost in the wreck and 17 survivors died before rescue came, leaving only one survivor, Eugène Gonidec, master steersman. Jean-Baptiste Charcot was one of the dead, aged 69.
Best regards,
Freddy.

O.K. but … sometimes Wikipedia gives some wrong info. To be correct ;
Expeditions in Antarctic : from 1908 to 1910
…and Arctic : in 1921, 1925, 1927, 1928, 1930, 1931-1933, 1934, 1935 and 1936 (+ 16 Sept.)
Regards,
Freddy.
