Hopefully we'll hear the crew is well.

The vessel reporting stated they stayed on station a while, circled, blew horns, etc, but didn't see or hear anyone.

Re: Capsized trimaran

It may have been one of the Caribbean 1500 boats that reported it. Some are in close proximity to that Lat/Long. s/v Gypsy is withing about 30 nm of the location right now.

I'd guess that it's been drifting for a few days at this point. The winds in that area haven't been high enough to capsize a boat since after TS Sean moved out.

Re: Capsized trimaran

I think that this article French trimaran capsizes | The Daily Sail gives a possible explanation as to the origin of the capsized tri. The name seems a good fit.

It would seem to be the one. It's been floating out there a long time. I wonder if the reported spotting will lead to a recovery?

Re: Capsized trimaran

Certainly is a testimony to the durability of capsized multihulls if it is the same boat from a year ago.

Re: Capsized trimaran

That's a loooooong way from the position reported above...

34-19.367N
071-00.539W

It's certainly feasible over that length of time--Dec 2010. We get fisherman's floats from Portugal on the beach here.

Just heard the skipper describe it to Herb on 12.359, and it sure seems to be the same boat.

Re: Capsized trimaran

Did you catch the name of the boat that found it?

Re: Capsized trimaran

Thanks, Don. I was wondering if it was a Caribbean 1500 boat, but it's not.

Yeah, they can cross oceans, but I prefer to stay upright in my mono.
