My Dad Arthur and my step Mother Sharon have been missing at sea since Saturday.
They were sailing from St Lucia to Barbados, an easy sail and one my Dad has possibly done hundreds of times.
Searches from Barbados, St Lucia and Martinique have been ongoing with no sightings so far. My siblings and I are now appealing for anyone in any surrounding islands with access to boats, light aircraft or helicopters to join in the search. Our hope is that the yacht may be drifting.
We thank you all for any assistance that you may be able to offer."

I understand they have no EPIRB.

Missing since Saturday means what? They left Grenada Friday? Or Saturday was an overdue date? Where in Grenada did they leave? prickly Bay or Carriocou? The millage difference is 160 miles to 115 miles.

Drift rates west ward could have them west of the island chain now.

Since when is 63 and 59 an "elderly couple?" I guess I don't have as much time left as I thought...

Hope they are alright, seems the guy is having a bit of bad luck, the boat he was captin of sank just last May.

Elderly? Sixty-three and 59 are only late middle age.

Hopefully they will be found having sun-downers in some quite cove somewhere quite unaware of the furor surrounding their "disappearance" (which may have been entirely intentional).

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."

The news article called them an "elderly couple."

I do think it seems a bit premature to worry too much. Sure have locals looking out doe them. I agree they may have ducked into someplace. If it was a delivery I take it that it is not their own boat then.
