S/V Triumph lost in the atlantic

Details are still sketchy, but S/V Triumph, a Gulfstar 50 ketch that was based at my marina, has been lost somewhere in the mid-Atlantic. The couple on board was rescued by a passing cargo vessel and is safe and unharmed, but lost everything they own. They departed for Europe on 7/10 from Boston. All we know is they had some trouble with the headsail which they thought they fixed, but ended up losing the sail, and the mast was also questionable at that point. They eventually ended up taking on water and abandoned ship on 7/27. That's literally all the details I have.

S/V Triumph lost during atlantic Xing

Leaving July 10th is abit risky but it is hardly the middle of Hurricane season...certainly that date is towards the "end of the beginning " of hurricane season..remember..the season ends on Nov 30... almost 4 months from now...and it technically began June 1st ..or 2 months ago..splitting hairs...?...Yes..I am guilty... ....Are the crew of S/V Triumph mentally unstable. for doing so...? No. Probably not... Do We need more info before further commentary....definitely. Will we blabber and speculate indiscriminately anyway whether more hard info is forthcoming soon...or not....affirmative....we will..that's a large imperative for coming to this site.

Sorry to hear their loss, I am glad they are safe. This could happen to me so I like to learn more from their mishaps.

Was a hurricane posted during the time they were crossing?

Some one was asking about crewing on a boat crossing at that time and I think it was a Gulfstar. Same boat?
