Good Evening all,
We are currently undergoing a search for a very well established captain
from our yachting community, Robert/Bob Peel.
We had last established comms with Bob on 14th March, and that his planned voyage was to head
north to San Juan
, Puerto Rico
, he was at anchor
in Tyrell Bay Carriacou. After 10 days of no comms we started to get concerned, and we contacted with the Cruiser community down there, and someone eye-witnessed his yacht Kalayaan Departing the bay and headed north, this was 18th or 19th March.
This evening we have found out that his EPIRB
has been set off first on the 19th March and then the Final and last signal received was 24th March, the information I received from Trinidad and Tobago
SAR. We have contacted MRCC Falmouth, UK, USCG, San Juan
PR, MRCC Martinique
, SAR in Grenada
and everyone seems to be bouncing around who’s the problem this is.
We are now reaching out to the yachting community, for people still south in the Caribbean
or contacts you may have down there to help aid in the search for Bob, watchkeepers in the vicinity, please keep an extra vigilant lookout for anything that may help us work
out where Bob is. Bob is a strong, stubborn Scotsman, he is a survivor and won’t give up if he is in that life raft.

Please help us find Bob.
