The Cheeki Rafiki capsized somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean. So far the search for the missing British yacht crew has yielded no clues.

The Coast Guard has ended their search for the inhabitants of the Cheeki Rafiki yacht. No one was found. The whereabouts of the four travelers on that yacht remains a mystery. While the yacht was found abandoned in a far off spot, the denizens of the ocean-faring behemoth were not to be found anywhere.

Missing British yacht structure was almost completely destroyed. And it was found a thousand miles off the coast of Massachusetts. The four people who remain missing are: Andrew Bridge, Steve Warren, Paul Goslin and James Male. Any chances of them being alive are close to zero.

The conditions they faced in their harrowing experience with inclement weather would have caused instant drowning. So the search proved fruitless in the end. The search started early on and continued till midnight when the Coast Guard called it a day.

The survival window of opportunity would have been approximately a day, and that time period has long since expired. It would be a miracle if any of the men who managed the boat are still alive after all that happened. The search went on for about four days and yet no signs of the occupants of the yacht were found.

"Based on the extreme sea conditions at the time of distress, but assuming best-case emergency equipment, the estimated survival time past the time of distress was approximately 20 hours," the Coast Guard said. "Searches were suspended nearly 200 hours after the time of distress."

The tragic event took place over a week ago. The Cheeki Rafiki was a big yacht that had just taken part in a regatta. It was returning home after the boat race and found itself in bad atmospheric conditions. The stormy and tempestuous sea that is the Atlantic is known as a sailor’s woe. And unfortunately it proved to be their doom.

 

U.S. Coast Guard announced on Friday night that "the boat's life raft was secured in its storage space ... indicating the crew had not been able to use it for emergency purposes."

Condolences have been extended to the aggrieved relatives of the four men who were never found. It is indeed a sad thing to lose such avid sports enthusiasts on the high seas. May their souls rest in peace.
