Lost yacht - can you help?

***Captain MIssing***

If you know anyone in the area, please share and let us know if you have any information. Please send us a message via FB and we will share directly with the search coordinator.

Sail Yacht Kalayaan



Captain Bob Peel

EPIRB last activated px: 12’ 38.88N 061’29.28W 12NM NW of Carriacou Nr Union Island.

Date 24th March 2020

AIS: Last Known PX Tyrell Bay, Carriacou


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.

Pictured is Bobs Boat, Kalayaan, the UK registered Sun Odyssey 54DS, Blue Hull.

Please share and pass on the word to any other groups or forums you see fit.

Please help us find Bob.

This is also well posted on all the FB groups and SSB nets. Long time gone in well traveled waters.
