Stormforce- Missing Yacht.

THE SHIP OF LIFE
by John T. Baker

Along the shore I spy a ship
As she sets out to sea;
She spreads her sails and sniffs the breeze
And slips away from me.

I watch her fading image shrink,
As she moves on and on,
Until at last she's but a speck,
Then someone says, She's gone.

Gone where? Gone only from our sight
And from our farewell cries;
That ship will somewhere reappear
To other eager eyes.

Beyond the dim horizon's rim
Resound the welcome drums,
And while we're crying, There she goes!
They're shouting, Here she comes!

We're built to cruise for but a while
Upon this trackless sea
Until one day we sail away
Into infinity.

That's a beautiful poem and a terrific thing to post at this sad time. My thoughts and condolences are with the friends and families of all those involved.

Must have been a catastrophic event for them not to be able to deploy the life raft. Sudden loss of keel and capsize??
So sad and sympathies with their families.
