Re: Details on this 'lost at sea' story?

Sad but avoidable and predictable. Lots of people have warned them.

Just some days ago a guy was rescued out of Australia, sailing at 50º South in a 35ft light boat and I heard that a guy is staring a circumnavigation in a 7.7m light boat not to mention a re-incident Swedish that want to circumnavigate in a boat a little bigger than a bath tub

Sailing and crossing oceans involve always a risk...the question is what is an acceptable risk, for the guys that are doing it, for the ones that have to rescue them and for the ones that are paying those rescues.
