ARC Europe-Bermuda to Azores news?

Anyone heard today from a boat in the rally? I'm looking to touch base with a Hallberg-Rassy traveling along, but probably not officially in the group. Last heard from them yesterday evening when they said they were going into a front. Their Delorme tracker is not updating. Definitely not any emergency - just worried in-laws. Thanks.

It would help if we knew the name of the boat. Its a little early but you could contact the US Coast Guard, assuming you are in the US, ask if they have any news on the boat. Boat name is essential and last known position would help.

Thanks-
Just heard from them, and it's now really calm. Guess the front passed. I didn't see any reason to post boat details unless there's contact with another boat in the rally. They're not in touch on a daily basis, and it's not a situation where I would say they were missing or in danger. Just curious about conditions. I never realized how much more stressful this is from the armchair versus the boat. Now I really feel for my inlaws during our cruising years.
