Missing Boater near Gibson Island

I heard about the boater who went missing Monday off Gibson Island. We were sailing past there yesterday about noon, and an hour or so later, the storm kicked up. We got gusts up to about 40 knots. Luckily, we were able to pull in the jib and had no problems.

Not sure of the size of the vessel the boater was on, but its pretty sad. They searched last night for him until dark, and will continue the search today.

I feel we were really lucky, as we were an hour ahead of where the really bad weather hit.
