Re: Missing sailor Cape Horn.

I'm guessing this is the man overboard in the Volvo race. I think there's a post on CF about it but also a link here.

Re: Missing sailor Cape Horn.

Such a tragedy,what a horrible way to go, watching that boat leaving you behind and knowing your fate. God awful! I wonder why he wasnt teathered to a line.well I guess you can't always be. my prayers go out to his family.
