Two MOB Found Dead in Beagle Channel - Argentina

News from Frigate Captain Martin Ribeiro of the Argentine Navy states that the Argentine Navy ship has found the two MOB from the Polish flag sailboat dead. The sailboat the - NASHACHATA - was found earlier at the mouth of the Rio Lopez and Punta Argentina close to Ushuaia with only 5 survivours onboard. The navy marines had deployed inflatables from the mother ship the ARA Burruchaga to search for the missing captain and his brother. Also from Ushuaia, Argentina a navy helicopter and a speeed navy boat with marines on board did join the seach for the missing sailors. My sympathies to their families and friends.

The Beagle Channel is the "safe" way to get around the cape.

met these guys a few years ago,when they came to view salamandra, my yacht with the intention of buying it to do expedition/charters out of ushaia,nice guys.
marek was quite a famous polar explorer in poland,and was the principle guy in this venture,though after spending a few hours with him going over my boat gathered that he didnt have that much sailing experiance.......sad way to learn the hard way.
condolences to the family

NASHAHATA

Nashachata was only few years old expedition yacht, steel 59 footer.
Between the crew members were well known Polish arctic and antarctic sailors.
The yacht rounded the Horn previously and circumnavigated the Antarctica.
Here is the link to their web page:

The loss of Captain Marek Radwanski and his son in this accident is a great tragedy for all of us here.

Tragedy in Beagle Channel

On Monday, 13-th of December, Polish expedition yacht „Nashachata”, steel 59-footer, built in 2007, on the trip from Ushuaia to the Polish Antarctic base “Arctowski” on King George Island and back, sent Mayday after losing mast and – probably – steering in 11 – 12 B of wind and 5 meter waves in Beagle Channel. After few hours the yacht was stranded in Sloggett Bay (Lat: 55.033N Lon: 66.350 S).
On the board were seven persons, three of them carrying Yachtmaster tickets of Polish Yachting Association.
At the stranding two persons – Marek Radwanski (skipper of the yacht) and his brother Pawel were washed down and later found drowned.
Argentinian Navy rescue vessel “ARA Francisco de Gurruchaga” arrrived at the scene few hours after stranding and stood by up to next day, when the wind and waves abated and this was possible to pick up the rest of the crew from the rocks.
What were the causes of the tragedy is not known yet. The five survivors are now safe in Ushuaia. Nobody of them suffered major wounds.
Our thoughts here are with family of Radwanski brothers and with the survivors.

My condolences to the families but also to the people of Poland.

It's a reminder to all of us, again, that the ocean is ultimately an environment hostile to human beings.

".... After few hours the yacht was stranded in Sloggett Bay (Lat: 55.033N Lon: 66.350 S)"

Terrible trajedy....glad the 5 crew are safe, at least.

Believe the lat/lon should be 55.033South 66.350West.

What a loss for family and nation.
Poland has produced some great sailors; world girdlers, record setters and medalists.
Among them:
Krystyna Chojnowska-Liskiewicz
Thomasz Lewandowski
Mateusz Kusznierewicz
Joanna Pajkowska

Heres to Marek and Pawel Radwanski for their contribution to a great sailing tradition!!
