We are saddened to learn of this tragic loss at sea where crew member Sarah Young lost her life doing the ocean racing she so loved.
I was personally touched by the flotilla method her comrades used to honor her life, courage and bravery.
The crew demonstrated true Dignity and
Reverence in committing her back to the sea.
May she rest in peace and travel the world forever in total peace and tranquility,
Capt Brad White
