Default SV Walk About I Missing


Jean-Pol Dheedene (70) with his blue 44f metal ketch Walk About I (Belgian registration) left La Graciosa Canary Islands at 8 august heading to Cabo Verde, Senegal later to Gambia. From then no news from him! Everybody who now something or saw Jean Pol Please contact me or MRCC Oostende the coordinate the search.

Thanks Patrick
