Hopefully the poor woman is on the road to recovery. Hard to conceive of what she must have gone through and be going through. This can't hurt....


"Yachties offer support to dead sailor's wife

Queensland's yachting community is rallying around the wife of a sailor killed aboard their boat.
Police sailed the yacht to Gladstone overnight with the man's body still on board.
The couple had been on a 10-year expedition, sailing around the world.
The man died on Sunday, near Fraser Island, when he was hit in the head by the yacht's boom.
Senior Constable Peter Upton says police have taken calls from yachties from Bundaberg to Townsville who all want to help the widow.
"Received calls from people that have met them over their trips and some people who don't even know them, offering any support they can offer, from accommodation, assistance with the yacht and anything else she needs," he said."
