The boat DYSTOCIA FL 2153 NT, white sailboat, 35 feet, Bavaria type, model 1975, one mast - is long overdue and missing. The vessel was sailing from Bermuda to Newfoundland and from there the sailor planned to head towards Europe (the options were Ireland, Denmark, Iceland). On board there is one person, Jakob Fenger, Caucasian male, 56 years old, 170cm high, lightbrown short hair (greying), regular facial features, strong and fit for his age.

Last phonecall from Jakob was on June 3rd and last signal from iridium phone on June 4rth, then the boat was midway between Bermuda, Newfoundland and USA. After that the phone has apparently not been in use and nothing has been heard from Jakob. On board there were two lifeboats and Jakob said he was wearing a lifesuit (dry) most of the time. Nothing has been found from the boat, liferings, lifeboats etc........so the family is still hoping...........even vistfully hoping that Jakob decided to make a dramatic turn in his life and perhaps head for other shores.........so if anyone, anywhere, has seen the boat and Jakob, please let us know at harpo@islandia.is

With best regards,

Harpa Björnsdóttir
