The Darwin Principal?

Whilst out yesterday, heard Solent Coastguard transmit a PAN call, message 1.
Basically looking for information as to the whereabouts of a 28' Moody yacht.
It set off from Dunkirk to Brighton, one on board (73years old) and get this, at 1200 on Saturday! Now we cancelled all our Jurassic Tours due to the up to Force 8 gales, but did do a private charter just out in to Studland Bay. That was huge fun, very wet and huge seas.
However, the thought of doing a solo crossing of the Channel in a 28' Yacht on my own at 73 ........
Still if anyone has any news, the Coastguard would love to hear from you
Steve

Steve, Darwin only works if you do it before procreating - otherwise the genes are still passed on!
