Same as Mollers, please can everyone be careful what is posted, just had a spat with BBC over one of their posts on twitter.
Local south coast boat and experienced crew aboard.

Fingers crossed they are found. From what I've seen Doug runs a very professional outfit, they wouldn't be lacking on training or safety equipment.

Help needed

By now most will be aware of the yacht Cheeky Rafiki which is suspected of capsizing mid Atlantic. Rescue aircraft may have seen the upturned hull and have reduced/stop searching for the guys

This event was unfolding and the crew knew of the issues so had time to plan and prepare
We need everyone with Twitter Accounts to push a few buttons

We now need everyone on twitter to start tweets using hashtags #dontstopsearching and #findoursailors . Presently US coast guard may have seen upturned hull but are now not doing what we would normally see. Tweet to Barack Obama and David Cameron as well as CoastGuards. These guys are experienced sailors and knew of the impending problems so had time to plan emergency actions. Two locate beacons were set off in sequence which could suggest our sailors are still waiting to be rescued. ACT NOW please start tweeting

Had been following the crew on dougs Facebook page, fingers crossed for a positive outcome.

Been a bad few days for a couple of rib netters, really hope it's good news on the horizon.
