Re: Interesting Sailboats

This story is more than a month old! Anasazi Girl stays in Puerto Williams, Chile in the Beagle Canal, parents and three children living onboard. They are well!

In the link I posted it states that their Open 40 was towed to Puerto Williams by the Navy.

On your blog you say they lost the boat.

Which is correct?

The boat was towed.

Interesting is however, that Anasazi Girl has been for sale for quite a while because "James Burwick has acquired a catamaran for his now larger family to live aboard".

Re: Fipofix

After 2 attempts by Norbert Sedlacek, his son Harald finally made it. Without a working autopilot.

In the link you posted it gives the idea that the boat was towed at the same time of the rescue or even that then skipper was on the towed boat. It was not like that, the boat was abandoned and they were rescued in difficult conditions and transported by a Navy ship to Punta Arenas.

The boat rescue happened later also by the Chilean navy. Later James Burwick flew from Punta Arenas to Puerto William to recover the boat.

At the time I posted I did now that the boat had been abandoned but not that a towing operation was been carried and did not follow the story further.

Thanks. I will modify the post.

regards

Paulo
