Followup on Danish Pirated Yacht 'ING', Johansen Family and Crew

Hi, all, just wanted to provide closure on the "Danish yacht pirated in Somalia" thread that was closed after 13 pages (and before the Danes were released, earlier this month). The family and crew were released after the airdrop of a $3M ransom (raised by friends and family). Here's the BBC article from Sept 7th about this release: BBC News - Somalia pirates free Danish family seized in February

And the Yachting Monthly item about same: Seven Danes released by pirates after ransom drop | Sailing news | Yachting Monthly

Wishing fair winds, quartering seas, peaceful anchorages and safe passages to all... sorry for altering tradition a bit, but I think taking waves on either quarter is considerably more comfortable than on the transom! Easier to steer, too.
