Sad news from the Schooner Tho Pa Ga who sank thursday during a gale in the bay Biscayne. Fortunately all the crew could be rescued.
The captain dont know exactly the reason and just suppose they could hit a container. They could'nt manage to get all the water out and had to board the life-raft when the water level reached the deck.
This magnificent 126' long schooner was running charter in the Balearics Islands, and was on the way to the Brest meeting.

Very sad. Good that no lives were lost, but very sad.
