This is indeed a very tragic accident and perhaps some details of their sailing ability will show just how sad and tragic this is.

The news reports on the tragic death of Colin Craig on Yacht "Deja Vu" off the coast of Queensland Australia contained a few important inaccuracies ; To set the record straight :- Both Colin and his wife Glyn were both very experienced sailors. Colin was a former Commodore of the Zululand Yacht Club - one of the finest in Africa.

Colin and Glyn on Deja Vu won many international yacht races, including the Capetown to Rio, The Borneo cup, The Vasco de Gama down the South African Coast - just to name a few. Colin was a Radio Amateur - his call sign ZS5ABT - now silent.

Our thoughts are with Glyn, family and friends at this time!
