re: Yacht Evacuated Off Cape Sable Island (Canada)
Just saw this on CTV News. The report indicates the yacht was caught in gale force winds and high seas (apparently typical North Atlantic winter conditions). The report also indicates that the crew were from an "eastern block" country, and the question was raised as to why they were sailing the North Atlantic at this time of year.
Smell the sea and feel the sky.
Let your soul and spirit fly,
As we sailed into the mystic.
