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.

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.
