RWYC Racing
Ref; Cariberia; Neil PayterContact has been scarce and for approaching 48 hours the tracker has been unresponsive. Strong winds and big seas are likely to have effected electrics and electronics. There were early reports of damage to sails, running rigging and the fresh water tank. The EPIRB remains intact and course upto losing the tracker would suggest that the skipper was in control of 'Cariberia'. We are in touch with HMCG who are likely to commit to deployment of fixed wing asset surveylance of estimated locations soon, an area spanning from NE to SW and S ireland, as a precaution. This is standard procedure for an enquiry at this point in its timeline. Both HMCG and RWYC are keeping family informed of progress. We would ask that any contact to the HMCG is made ONLY when information relating to FIRST HAND sightings or contact is available - for all other enquiries please contact race director via ostar@rwyc.org .
