very bad and thoughts go out to family & friends of those involved. Well done to the survivor for making it out of the water.

trying to figure out what sort of boat it is - circular front hatch in the pics makes it look racy but also has a bow anchor locker.. anybody know more.

The article names it as a Stern 33

A quick inspection of pictures and a look on the net and it looks horribly like this is a boat which is based in the Solent.

We don't know this boat, but we are keeping our fingers crossed for a positive outcome and thinking of their families - just horrible.

i nearly went racing on that boat in the hamble winter series, the stern 33, still has it's garmin stickers and was kept at hys in hamble. BBC has it down as missing the 24 year old but they have the 23 and 52 year old but the other reports say it is a 52 and 53 year old missing? numbers are getting muddled up.

From the front page:

Q: If you know anything about these guys or their voyage that might help explain why they were trying to get into a closed out port in the middle of the night....

A: I'm guessing....Because Eddie would go?

Does anybody know why they tried to enter an unknown difficult port in bad weather at night?!?

Can't imagine why one would do that unless one had a medical emergency on board...

its a beny
Does Beny make the stern 33? Cause every comment in this thread, the news articles and the link to the broker page all call it a Stern 33 which last time I looked were not made by Beneteau.

They wanted to enter that port, cause it was planned to change crew over there. They simply decided to stay to that plan.
