captain and his brother are dead, rest of the crew were saved. Yacht in very hard conditions spinned 360 and and were pushed by huge waves (10m) on the beach in Slogget Bay. Here you can find an information about what happened - News: "Nashachata" - jak dosz?o do wypadku? - it's in polish but you can use google translate and catch the sense...

Looks like the boat ended up in the most favorable possible beach condtions that it could. Laying in the sand like that, it may be able to be towed off if there is no significant hull damage. A tragedy for the two lost and their families, however. The Horn is not a safe place to be even in a boat that looks as stout as that one.
