about a month ago I saw a news item about a yacht that went missing while sailing from Hong Kong to the Philippines but I cannot find an end to the story on the Internet. Does anyone know what happened to the yacht and the crew?

The best information I can find is that, after a ten day search operation, no trace of the yacht nor the five crew was found, so the search was called off. Nothing has been reported washed ashore that can be identified as being from the yacht. It appears that they were the victims of the typhoon that passed South of their route at that time.

The area where they were last confirmed reported (approx 200NM West of Laoag) can be rough and unpredictable when there is a storm in the vicinity or when the northeast monsoon is blowing hard.
