Missing: 'Lilly-Oh-La-Lah' 40' Gaff Ketch

MISSING 40’ GAFF KETCH THE “LILLY-OH-LA-LAH”

To All yachts in the Bahamas, T&C, Dominican Republic, Virgins :

Has any one seen, heard or know anything about the yacht and crew of The Lilly-oh-la-lah and can anybody please put me in touch with the yacht BADERIO and or WINDSTAR 4 cruising in those waters.

Description: the Lilly-oh-la-lah, 40’ Gaff Ketch, wooden spars, white hull with green stripe along the hull shearline, possibly New Jersey Reg Number painted in white on the green stripe, could be under American or British flag, crew/owner Kenny Jackson of Guernsey, Channel Islands and with black cat answering to the name “Buddy”. Yacht is equipped with VHF.

Kenny has uncharacteristically not been in contact with family or friends since leaving Charleston SC single-handed with cat on March 23, 2009 bound for Nassau Bahamas islands. It is not certain that they made a successful land fall in the Bahamas. Lack of contact since March 23 has us quite concerned.

Inquiries were made to the Bahamian authorities which produced possible
unconfirmed visual sighting (s) by the yacht BADERIO and WINDSTAR 4
around the time of a presumptive landfall April 1 and a few days later. No record of check in. This sighting information is quite tenuous and may well be in error due to its third party nature and other factors.

Any information that puts us in touch with BADERIO or WINDSTAR 4 or provides us with a solid indication that the Lilly-oh-la-lah made landfall would be appreciated beyond measure by his family and friends who are quite worried, considering the amount of time passed with no contact.

You can send him a PM, and the system will generate an email to let him know it's there.

capt tex,

They were looking for this boat when I was in the Exumas in March/April. Some sightings were reported but none confirmed as there was another boat in the area with a similar name. I believe Windstar 4 has hauled for the summer and Lee, the skipper, is back in Canada. I do not have her email address but you can get in touch with her through Chris Parker who does weather for the Bahamas and Caribbean. Here's Chris' email. chris@mwxc.com
Chris issued a boatwatch for Lilly-oh-la-la in March or April. Also if you have not already done so contact BASRA in Nassau, they had a boatwatch out for this vessel too.

Good luck in your search.
