Re: Sailboat perishes off Hatteras, USCG rescues crew

It was indeed "Andante 2" out of Virginia Beach, Virginia and was an "SP Cruiser" based on the tags on either side of her closed in cockpit that were quite visible as I circled the boat.

I tried attaching a few photos for your enjoyment but have an issue with a missing security token. The photo files are too large to send and exceed the Sailnet limitation even when I try to reduce their resolution. If any are interested drop a note here with an email address and I will send them off.

She was at position (N36 05.977 W63 40.122) on June 10 at 1358 hours (UTC -4) if anyone is willing to calculate her new drift position and go look for her.

Good luck
