We were not aboard Bounty– Our thoughts and hearts go out to our fellow crew members.

This past Spring we were crew aboard the tallship HMS Bounty. Many of you saw our blogs and video, as we shared what it is like to sail a traditional ship.  As you may now know, this morning the HMS Bounty sank off Cape Hatteras during hurricane Sandy.

USCG News Release: http://www.uscgnews.com/go/doc/4007/1591487/

Our hearts go out to the crew members and their families.  Thankfully, many have been rescued and are safe.  We are closely connected to many.  Here is one comment from a rescued friend on Facebook:

The ship sank beneath us, but we swam free and mostly got into two rafts.
I’m at the USCG station Elizabeth City NC. There are two unaccounted for at present.

This is tragic, terrifying news.  With all our hearts we hope that the two remaining crew members are rescued.

We have many memories on this ship.  It is how we met, and where we had our first kiss.  We are sorry she is gone, but angry that any life was risked in this way.

Please fellow sailors, be humbled by the weather.
