They are ok !!!!!!!

Yacht Rhumb do made Bayona late last night after 2 Nights in bad conditions in which we lost our boat Sentito.

We have not been able to contact them as yet due to our phone with all the numbers getting water damage whilst being airlifted.

Thanks to all who helped including the Spanish Coast Guard and Carmon from Nauta Coruna in la Coruna.

Thanks again

Darren & Vicki

Great to hear that very good news. Sorry you lost your boat, we lost ours in hurricane Ivan a few years ago, but lived to sail another day. The boat can be replaced but the good news is you are all ok.

Very sorry indeed to hear your news but very glad you are all safe.

You may not remember but we (Heartbeat, Sun Legende 41) were berthed in between yourselves and Rhumb Do in Cherbourg back in October (Friday 13th) and we had a brief conversation with you about Guernsey v Jersey and Angus Primrose Seeker 31s before you left to start moving westwards. I remember thinking that your Seeker seemed to be an excellent example and very well set up. We didn't get to talk with your friends from Rhumb Do but like your boat she also seemed very well sorted.

Perhaps when some kind of normal life is restored you can tell us more.

Best regards to all.

Robin

Thanks for the kind replies, we are really sad to lose our boat. She stood up to an unbelievable amount of punishment and our decision to abandon her was one of the hardest we have ever made.

Unfortunately we had serious concerns about the keel and were taking on water from the keel bolts. The boat would only hove to beam to the waves and you can imagine the consequences of this kind of abuse over a period of a day.

We were unable to receive any assistance other than to be airlifted off.

We are grateful to be alive and well and are unsure if Sentito is still afloat. Any advice anybody has regarding recovery of an abandoned yacht would be gratefully received. Her last known position was 41 degrees 2700 N, 09 degrees 17.00 W. The chances of her still floating are slim but nobody wants to give up on their dream if there is still hope.

If anyone is in the Northern Spain area the link below has a photograph of Sentito. (click on the log link).

Hi Dazautomatics,

Extremely sorry to hear that Sentito had to be abandoned, but delighted you are all ok.

Like Robin, we too saw you in Cherbourg a few weeks ago when we (Meander) were at anchor in the inner harbour for a few days on the way back to Plymouth.

We send you our very best wishes and hope Sentito can be recovered.

Kindest regards

Jerry

shame to hear about your boat. We were in Baiona at the time and spoke with a couple of others who'd got caught out in the same blow but made it out the other side. Pretty atrocious weather.
