The 180 foot replica of the HMS Bounty sank 90 miles off the North Carolina
coast this morning.
It appears that the vessel left New London, CT Oct 25 heading south to Florida
. 14 crew members were rescued from liferafts, one body was recovered and Captain
Robin Walbridge is still missing.
Although I'm generally opposed to armchair quarterbacking, leaving New London to head
south into a known hurricane
seems a bit unusual. North, yes but south???
My heart goes out to the families of the missing crew and our thanks to the USCG for another high risk rescue
