re: 6 Americans, 1 Brit vanish at sea

According to a report on CruisersForum, Australian SAR has reported contact with the boat, reportedly in the vicinity of Lord Howe (Sp?) Island, with no difficulty. While it may be nice to have frequent position up-dates via SPOT or other means, their sudden absence--even if caused by over-sight, failed batteries, or whatever--can heighten anxiety for friends and family of a cruiser unduly, doing more harm than good, eh?

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."
