Does anybody know the whereabouts of a Britch registered sailing yacht, "AQUARIUS" of Plymouth, England? 33' Ketch, GRP, white hull, centre cockpit, flies Blue Ensign. The captain is Arthur H Robbins, 72, retired Royal Navy. Last made contact from Tahiti some 4 months ago. Known to have been ill on board and suffering bad hand injury. Has been making regular email contact before, now nothing. Would appreciate it if someone knows where he is and how he is. Friends anxious.

Richard .....

It is a great joy to see that large list of email contacts that you posted at the beginning of this string. Good shipmates who offer up needed assistance in times of uncertainty are welcome crew be they on board or armchair bound....

kudos...
