Very little details.
4 onboard a yacht, 3 rescued, 1 dead.

Not good news. The weather is less than ideal, from the east. Metservice have issued a storm warning for Bream Head to Cape Colville, I've not looked at the forecast for Northland, don't even know which part of Northland this has occurred.

BP I trust you are safely tied up in your ditch.

  Two figures sat side by side, staring at the Sea. One said to the other, “You know that one day we will die.” And the other friend replied, “But all of the other days WE WILL LIVE!”

Apparently boat was going down, liferaft was lost ( during or before?) And they got in the water. Orion found them and CG(?) Went and picked them up. One doa and two others in bad shape.

There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats

Sounds like they picked up all four then one died. Another is in critical condition but the other two are in moderate condition.

20 nm NW of Cape Brett is the Cavilli's, but 20 nm due north is the 500 m contour. I wouldn't be surprised if the sea state around there 'coming onto soundings' was nasty with this easterly and deep low pushing in.

Sounds like a terrible ordeal.
