The last known location, 7 days ago, is 900nm short of Ponta Delgada in The Azores which seems to be their chosen port. Of course they could have changed their plans and headed Horta or on to Madeira.

No other details.

Haiti to the Azores. That's a heck of a long uphill trek. Let's hope the craft remains safe and that they have merely struck a little bad weather or have chosen to alter their route.

I recognise that you're new here but this thread is close on 6 months old and they made landfall in Horta 18 August and then onwards to France 22 September 2012.

Apologies for not updating but at the time I was dealing with MRCC Falmouth, MRCC Gris Nez and MRCC Delgada.

Their blog:

In English, please! A Coeur D'Eau
