West End, Grand Bahama. Missing 26ft Sailboat

Link to thread about missing sailboat. Thought I'd post here as I know many cruisers don't have the Internet to read new posts and just hit sub forums they are specifically interested in.

http://www.cruisersforum.com/…/…/tra...es-158283.html

Boat was last seen anchored off West End beach while singlehander was ashore.

Re: West End, Grand Bahama. Missing 26ft Sailboat

Ouch, looks like a year of work has just floated away.

Gil's blog is worth reading. A few shakedown trips would have probably helped avoid some of the difficulties. Hope the boat turns up.

Smart to post it here, Ocean Girl!

The latest post on Dagny's blog:
Dagny Spotted.
Posted by Gil on 24 December, 2015 in Under Way
Dagny was spotted tonight December 23rd at 5:30pm, reported by the USCG, at 27-03.7N 79-16.1W. 24hrs after drifting off.

DagnySP1

This is incredibly far North, and she will be on her way to Spain tomorrow. Her/my only chance would be if she drifted to the shallows on the Northern Bank, but there is little chance of that now.
I may have to somehow find my way to the airlines in Nassau…
