Terrible time and condolences to NOK on this awful news.

Gentle moderation notice - could we please keep this to condolences only and not any speculation as this is now an ongoing criminal investigation.

Bad CO

Agreed - also likely that NOK etc will need to be informed so pse don't provide any personal details of deceased.
Very sad news, my sincere condolences to family and friends. My thoughts are also with the guys on the boat at this time.
I know the XO very well; cant get hold of any info - beggining to panic.

There's no point panicking - I'm sure many of us know several people on board. We'll know either way soon enough, and some of us wil get better news than others, sadly. Until then, have a drink to sailors everywhere, and hope for the best. RIP
