Sunk at Musgrave

Very sad, 9m yacht "Eclipse" sunk just west of Lady Musgrave Island, Queensland. We were only there a fortnight ago so hard to imagine. Three people rescued but I don't know the details. Be careful all.

Found a bit more. ABC news article. Not three people, just one man (67) who set off his EPIRB and several flares early on May 15th. Forced to abandon ship for a raft, then picked up by a passing boat. Boat is now listed in Notice to Mariners as a hazard. Been a bit blowy out there.
