Boat Missing

In the same vicinity another boat crewed by Bermudians was caught with tons of cannabis and oil on board:

Authorities searching for the missing yacht Carefree IV today named its two Bermudian crew members as 41-year-old Carlos Rogers and 36-year-old Kwesi Hollis.
The 31ft yacht was last sighted about 210 nautical miles south southwest of Bermuda on December 18, when they alerted a passing merchant vessel asking for food and water.
Since then the US Coast Guard has been involved in an intensive search for the vessel which was heading to Bermuda from the Dominican Republic.


This morning a spokesman for the Bermuda Maritime Operations Centre said it was continuing to issue urgent marine information broadcasts to merchant vessels travelling east and south of the Island.
The spokesman added: “The UK-registered sailing vessel, with two Bermudian citizens on board, was last sighted approximately 210 nautical miles south southwest of Bermuda on December 18, when they alerted a passing merchant vessel to their plight for food and water.
“After replenishment of supplies, the crew indicated they were inbound for Bermuda, arriving possibly on December 23. The Carefree IV which departed the Dominican Republic on December 1 has not been sighted since December 18.
“The two persons onboard are believed to be 41-year-old Carlos Rogers and 36-year-old Kwesi Hollis.”

More sad news - here's to hoping that they are still alive, albeit out of the area that was searched.

My bad, not tons of cannabis but 700 pounds:

The US Drug Drug Enforcement Agency alleges Bermudians Shawn Antoine Simmons, Antoine Wenfield Eugene Russel and Raymont Steven Bernard Francis were found with 700 pounds worth of marijuana in international waters.
In an affidavit US Special Agent Roxana Pulido states the Bermudians were taken into custody on December 12 after their 34ft sailboat Phantasea was intercepted in the Caribbean region.

Carefree IV is still missing.

Crew of the Carefree IV found safe and well
Two Bermudian sailors who have been missing for two weeks have been found safe and well 150 miles off the Island. The sailors, 41-year-old Carlos Rogers and 36-year-old Kwesi Hollis, set sail from the Dominican Republic on December 1 aboard the S/V Carefree IV. According to the Bermuda Maritime Operations Centre, they were last seen on December 18. At that time, they were reportedly running low on food and water. Tonight a spokesman for the Centre said they received a call from the M/V Bay Ranger at 4.26pm. The Captain of the ship said they had been in VHF radio telephone contact with the S/V Carefree IV in position approximately 150 nautical miles southeast of Bermuda He added: "The crew were safe and well,...

It would appear the crew needs to work on its navigation skills.

Yikes, you know how to hurt. But spare a thought for my neighbour. Opens his mouth and he's a pom but over the years he's been battered by his 'er indoors into supporting Oz. Now that's a lost man...

You need to check your history books. "uz byes" were doing this run both ways in the 18th century. Building stone and veggies to Turks and Caicos, salt back North for the Cod salting in the Can. Maritimes.
Bermuda once "owned" Turks and Caicos.

Mark and DOJ
Got your stories mixed up.
Drug boat snugly in custody
"Carefree" has been trucking North against 3 weeks of lows that have been giving us regularly 45 to 60 from the north.
Boys seem to be in good shape, but tired.

Late congrats Mark
