Hey Ed, we still must get the message across at the right time that the SA community cares, hurts and wants to help.
That is absolutely right. I am going to bed now, but tomorrow I will look out for the fund contribution details and put on a news story and I will blame myself if it does not hit the top of a google news search for Volvo Ocean Race, Hans' name and ABN AMRO, tomorrow morning.

I will also personally e-mail some organisations that I hope will be able to influence getting people to contribute.

If the family does have insurance that will keep them comfortably, they might well like to set up something in Hans memory that will help young aspiring sailors, because that was what he did.

Ive given as well. I feel blessed that I am able to do something, somehow, to help out his family.

It is times like this that makes sailing special and Sailing Anarchy truly what it is.

Thanks to Ed and Dawg for making it happen.

I just made a donation now. Thank you Ed and Dawg for making this happen.

Really tugs at the heart strings. Doing my first Bermuda race in a few weeks and having 2 small kids at home brings it all that much closer. I hope his family finds some peace some day in knowing that he died doing what he loved.

Fair winds and seas to you all.......

I'm in.

I reposted the article and link to the fund on our local sailing message board as well, just in case there is someone out there who doesn't read SA.

I've sent mine and would like to thank those responsible for getting this going so quickly and allowing us to express our sorrow in a way that will help those he loved.

At least I feel I have made a contibution but quite honestly, I'm thinking more about the guys on ABN2 who are bringing him home than I am about the race. It just seem very important any more. :(
