UPDATE: AT 0455 AM, the SC 70 OEX sank.
Terrific friend and one of the true gentleman in the sport, John Sangmeister has just reported some awful news:
The OEX crew experienced rudder issues and had to abandon ship. Pyewacket has picked the crew up and they are all on their way back to the mainland.
Most importantly, ALL ARE SAFE. Needless to say, we are incredibly appreciative to Roy Disney and the crew of Pyewacket. We are devastated about the loss of our wonderful OEX. Will post when I have more information. Everyone is still in shock.
