An update on Ran Tan II.
At 0530 this morning the keel let go completely and disappeared into the deep blue Pacific ocean. Ran Tan is still upright and stable in the slight seas. Liferaft and dinghy launched. Boys just had a cold beer, crackers and cheese. Waiting patiently for their next ride, a 1000 ton Mexican tuna boat out of Ensenada. They are about 4 hours away.
Thank you so much for all the messages of support and encouragement.
Unfortunately it looks like a sad end to a very fine yacht.

We have confirmation that the crew is now safely aboard the Mexican fishing boat!

We can't say enough about the Coast Guard and other agencies that made this rescue a success. Their professionalism, as well as the fantastic decision making and actions of the guys on board made this possible.

We are overwhelmed and so appreciative of the outpouring of support and wishes that have come our way in the last 24 hours.

The Ran Tan family stretches far and wide. We have all been so lucky to be part of the ride!

Looking forward to seeing the guys soon

I reckon if some of us were out there on the boat, we would understand why towing it somewhere wasn’t an option. For numerous reasons.

 

Massive shame to loose an awesome boat for a crew with big aspersions. Pleased the crew are safe.
