S/V Triumph lost in the atlantic

Details are still sketchy, but S/V Triumph, a Gulfstar 50 ketch that was based at my marina, has been lost somewhere in the mid-Atlantic. The couple on board was rescued by a passing cargo vessel and is safe and unharmed, but lost everything they own. They departed for Europe on 7/10 from Boston. All we know is they had some trouble with the headsail which they thought they fixed, but ended up losing the sail, and the mast was also questionable at that point. They eventually ended up taking on water and abandoned ship on 7/27. That's literally all the details I have.
