Re: Arrived Safe -Any yachts currently on passage westbound to Marquesas?

Thank you for the quick response. The whole family from the S/V ODYLE is safe, visiting in the US.

Boatwatch.org thanks all who were concerned and is happy to share the good news.

All that stress, when all he needed was a satellite communicator to send an all-is-well message, or text someone in real time. They would have also been able to see his exact position on a map. Would have saved the rescue teams a lot of money as well.
