Slightly curious story...got lost on way from Hawaii to Tahiti after departing in (northern) spring. Rescued yesterday by the US Navy. http://wapo.st/2yPGNZ0
The pair had prepared for a long trip; they had water purifiers and over a year’s worth of food on board, mostly dry goods like oatmeal, pasta and rice.
But apparently didn't have the ability to navigate or someone to raise the alarm if they didn't show up when expected?
