Where is she now?

Just finished completing Spirits predicted drift given the last seven days weather and it looks like she is 300 miles east of Norway. Her predicited land fall is in 5 -6 days time somewhere around the Loften Isles. If any RIBNET members are up that way keep an eye out, I really do miss my best pair of jeans that I had to leave behind! Alan P

Avanti, Fjordrafting and any other ribnet members from Norway,

Keep a lookout, for The Spirit.

Spread the word, we might be able to salvage this vessel. If there is anything left.
I will be happy to drive to Norway to collect what can be collected, and ship it back to Alan.

Glad to see you back and safe Alan and Crew


Kathleen, keep up the good work, you are truely a supportive person.

Regards
Rene

There would be something satisfying about knowing the final end.

For what it is worth a friend of Tim lost a Trimaran, mid Atlantic, apparantly the US Military track objects in the North Atlantic, tro a contact in Ireland they got in touch with a US dipolmat who got a Lat Long, the vessel was recovered, I dont know details, I wonder would an approach to MOD yield any useful contacts

Hi Alan. There are probably a few well-dressed fish swimming around out there.

...and Egbert had invested in special anti-bacterial undergarments for the trip

If they're picked up by satellite it could all be valuable in monitoring currents in the area
