Cheeki Rafiki Search is ON for Missing Yachtsmen

Cheeki Rafiki Search is ON for Missing Yachtsmen
/* Story Top Left 2010 300x250, created 7/15/10 */ google_ad_slot = "8340327155";
 
 

The search for the missing yachtsmen in the Cheeki Rafiki capsizing incident is on.

The four men who were on that yacht on that fateful day have not been found. They are feared to be dead. James Male, Andrew Bridge, Steve Warren and Paul Goslin were four Britons whose yacht named the Cheeki Rafiki vanished into the Atlantic Ocean. 

Their families have requested the American authorities to continuously probe into the mystery of their disappearance. The Cheeki Rafiki entered dire straits when it was returning from a regatta. It was a 40 feet long yacht and when it entered the deluge, no apparent survivors surfaced. 

The captain of the yacht lost all contact with the port administration and then the yacht and its inhabitants were heard of no longer. Both US and Canadian forces looked high and low for the unfortunate yacht party but to no avail.

Of course, the weather conditions were quite nasty as they often are in the tempestuous Atlantic Ocean. Whereas the Pacific Ocean is a calm and quiet affair, the Atlantic is a very chaotic region of stormy temperament. 

The relatives of the four men are worried and teary-eyed. They want the rescue parties and search efforts to continue unabated. No stone must be left unturned in the drive to find these men. 

Captain Andrew Bridge’s grandmother Valerie, 75, said: “We are delighted that they are actually starting to search again and just hope this helps and we find them.

“We were just keeping our fingers crossed that with all the publicity around this they might change their mind and it is just such a relief to see that they have.”

In fact, an online petition has been signed by over 4000 individuals requesting the coast guards to resume the exploration for the missing men. 

Mr Goslin's daughter Claire signed online petition with the message: "One of the sailors is my dad and we cannot give up! He is my world and we need to start this search again!!!"

Ms Bridge said: "The hull has not been examined so that is a possibility, there is a possibility they may have been able to launch a life raft, we just do not know.

"Obviously the conditions are difficult, we appreciate every effort is being made but we were surprised the search was called off so early. We are in contact with the Foreign Office and they have been helpful."

There is hope that exists in the hearts of the relatives that these four men may still be alive and stranded on some far off island. After all, hope springs eternal in the human breast. 

 

The fact that the foursome may have made a makeshift raft from the wreckage is one of the possibilities that are being considered. It is the only last hope of the relatives. 

The families of the four missing persons are facing a tough time indeed and they want to make heaven and earth meet in order to find their loved ones.
