Atlantic Winter Rescue 3 Souls

Here:

Mid-Atlantic: Sailors Rescued 900 Miles Offshore — Noonsite

I believe the beacon was a Spot. The boat was a Tiburon.

Wow, glad they are ok. CG sites good communications equipment instrumental. Glad the Spot is so reasonably priced, great addition to the boats safety arsenals.

Re: Atlantic Winter Rescue 3 Souls

Yep.

Too bad someone thought a winter North Atlantic delivery is something to be done in a Tiburon 36.

I may be wrong here, but possibly the choice of Spot as a rescue beacon casts light on the general set-up and preparation of the boat. A Tiburon is not something that would shake off her rig unless she got real hit (possibly rolled).

Very good news her crew are safe.
