A VOR65 LOST ON THE REEFS (movie)

Really sad, a beautiful brand new boat abandoned on a reef on the middle of nowhere, 260nm out of Mauritius Islands. All are well and have already been picked up. The boat, Vestas, was one of the competitors on the Volvo Ocean Race, a circumnavigation race. Pretty incredibly the way they did not notice that they had a small Island ahead. They did not grounded the boat on some isolated reef outside the Island but almost at the middle of it, 6NM from the beginning. I guess they were too much concentrated on racing to make a decent navigation :-(

    1. Yes you are right. Force of habit in what regards talking about VOR's. Thanks, I will change the title.
