Two Sailors Lost Off Portugal

Just picked this up on the web: BBC News - UK sailors missing off coast of Portugal but am surprised to see the boat broke in half.

This sad news it's been broadcast on the portuguese tv news channels for the last two days. One of the sailors is recovering in the hospital.

Sorry to hear that one of the guys was a good friend... wish I could hold out some hope for his survival but these seas are cold and currents of this coast can be treacherous.....
Condolences to Family and Friends
