Hi all please
sign this petitions in order to put pressure to keep searching for the crew of Cheeki Rafiki, a sailing yacht from Southampton
, was returning home to the UK with a crew of four, following a successful race
in the Caribean. On Thursday Skipper
Andrew Bridge reported that the boat was taking on water
. The experienced crew believed that the situation was stable but amended their course to head
for the group of islands, Azores
. On Friday morning the yacht training and charter
firm Stormforce Coaching lost
all contact with them.
The US Coast Guard has done a fantastic job searching for the crew, but we are asking that they just give them a bit more time. It is reported that two consecutive signals were picked up from personal beacons indicating that they had made it to the life raft. They deserve a chance to be found, please help by signing this petition to ask the US Coastguard to please search again.
I sailed with Andy on Cheeki Rafiki last summer during the Fastnet 2013 race
. Andy is an amazing guy and showed such genuine care for me and all his crew mates, that we all consider him a close friend and desperately want him to be found
