Bad things that happen at sea.

I am having trouble finding statistics that would tell me how many sailboats (30ft. and under) are lost at sea during any given year. I am interested in the East coast, and Northern Caribbean areas. Any ideas on where to look?
And for all of you with years of experience would you say these things usually happen because the people on board are reckless, given that today there is plenty of warnings with todays technology...etc. or, is it that the wheather can change that fast and the wheather people miss it that often?
Thanks for any info.
