Re: Another yacht abandoned, 450 NM SE of Cape Cod
I'm mostly worried about the SDR participants. Could be havoc out there.
Well, I suppose it will have to be left to our collective imaginations, how a pre-departure Safety Inspection might have prevented any of these recent abandonments... :-)
How ironic, that among all these losses and rescues recently, the one boat most likely equipped in strict compliance with the ISAF safety guidelines, was the Beneteau 40.7 CHEEKI RAFIKI, with the loss of her 4 crew...
