Re: Sailor found dead on drifting yacht
"As a team we found comfort that he was found and that peace will be given to his friends and family who have been looking for him. Our words and thoughts were shared for the sailor as he now rests in peace."
"Very well put" doesn't do this justice. Very few of us deserve such an epitaph.
"...the experience was quite distressing for the crew member who went aboard, who does not wish to talk publicly about it,..."
I've never come across a dead body. Yet there are seven billion plus of us here now, and we are all going to be found by somebody, eventually. Some are trained for this; most aren't. This crew member is a Hero.
I wish well for the Crew of the "LMAX Exchange". They stopped their Race to help a fellow Sailor possibly in trouble, all for nought but nightmares, and now in third place. Life goes on.
