A long way from home and I can't quite believe the aspect of the report regarding "enough food to last up to 10 days" - methinks they would actually have more.

Hope they are picked up safely.

"The tanker's initial position was 800 nautical miles from the yacht, and it has been steadily making its way towards the stranded sailors over the past two-and-a-half days"

Tis a big ocean out there.
