It was a few weeks ago, but Practical Boat Owner reported this month that a historic yacht had been lost in similar circumstances.
I left my copy in Menorca so can't look it up for you.

The guy had spent 5 years restoring it from a complete wreck then mis-understood a radio message about the ships course I think.

So this "sums it up", does it?

Perhaps I've missed something? I just read this as a bit of hearsay.
