Newspaper reports about sailboat issues are rarely accurate or complete. From this article it is very hard to know exactly what happened. Not that familiar with the area between Mexico and Hawaii but I would have thought the water warm enough that hypothermia would not have been an issue in that time frame.

Then of course, there is the whole issue of people from Calgary sailing at all - they should be riding horses.

After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
