Possibly because life insurance policies won't pay if you're "racing" or putting yourself "in harms way" in any form, it cancels the policy (read the fine print). That's only a guess from an old Pro/Semi Pro Drag Racer who had "track insurance". Military people also have the same special policies.

News reports indicated that all four of them were in PFD's, (hopefully Type I's) so I'm hopeful.

U.S. Navy sailors and Marines have been found after falling overboard, days afterwards with nothing but air slapped into their clothing to sustain them.

I really don't care what happened and where the sailboat is located. Just wanted to find the the missing person "Laura" to be alive. From all the indication, she is a strong and smart woman. Against all odds, She will live and tell her story.

Hope everyone down is there is looking for her.

Update noon: Steve Black, owner of Cruising Rally Association, has been notified by the Bahamas Air Sea Rescue Association (BASRA) today that “the conditions are not favorable for finding Laura Zekoll alive.” The search and rescue mission involving the US Coast Guard, the Bahamas Defense Force, BASRA, and local efforts since Saturday night has resulted in “no findings.” The US Coast Guard has suspended its activity. The BDF will suspend its activity today. BASRA will continue aerial surveys of the vessel and area

That is very disconcerting news TAK. I, along with all the others here, wished her a safe rescue and swift recovery.

Thanks for the update - I still have some slight hope, but when I found out that they located a 4th matching lifevest a mile south of the survivors, I became very worried that things were unlikely to have a positive outcome. This is so sad - Laura is an amazing woman. She has battled many physical limitations in the past and done incredible things despite her 'handicap'. This is a very sad time.

Let's hope for the best.

For some reason they took this news off of the site. There is no Tuesday update on there right now.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things y%^&*.....oh never mind. 90% of the people on sailing forums already use that as their signature! I'm not a conformist.

Here's another story with some details I'd not seen elsewhere and some more information on Laura.
