"Blessed Be" missing?

The yacht "Blessed Be" has been reported as missing off the Northern NSW/Southern Queensland coast.

Link to "The Australian" news item.

A major search is currently taking place. When we lost our Prime Minister I don't remember them looking this hard.

This boat could be a Morgan 41 that took part in the "Puddle Jump". However that boat was reported as having a dog on board and being dismasted.

Does anyone have any information on the boat that might give a clue about where they might be?

Lost-at-sea stories are always sad. One can only hope and pray that they're found. I was living in Perth, WA when your Prime Minister disappeared. I got the impression that they thought that a shark may have eaten him up so there wasn't much to search for. Plus the fact that he was a bloody politician!!

Looking in the wrong place?

I was thinking that the search might be looking in the wrong place.
If someone knows the crew then they might be able to give the searchers a clue.
The weather has been bad, but not that bad.
