Sailboat perishes off Hatteras, USCG rescues crew

Here is a more detailed article about the rescue of Andante II off Hatteras, during the Nor'easter in early March. Two experienced delivery captains ended up calling for a USCG rescue after rebuffed attempts to reach Pamlico Sound through Ocracoke, Hatteras, and Oregon Inlet.

Sailboat knocked down, lost diesel engine power, amidst 30 foot waves and gale conditions. Anyone know what kind of boat this is?

Survivors of March 6 shipwreck say they stand by the choices they made. - Page 3 - baltimoresun.com

Artilce said it was an IP41, didn't it?
They made some questionable choices and didn't know a major inlet was closed.

Two of our delivery captains here on SailNet advise against all three of the inlets they wished to enter, even in calm conditions.

The article says it is an Island Packet SP cruiser.

""Even my father has said, 'Why go out in those conditions? Why not wait a few days?'" recalled Southward."

Duh!, on an Island Packet SP cruiser, which was designed for the ICW.

Re: Sailboat perishes off Hatteras, USCG rescues crew

There have many posts on SailNet about Island Packets being blue-water boats. I don't get it.

That part of Atlantic can be challenging even in good weather. I'm glad they got out of it alive.

In 30 foot, breaking waves in a noreaster, even the toughest bluewater cruiser would likely get pummeled to the point of rescue.
