We Are 104 Miles From The Faroe Islands. Waves 10 to 12 Foot And Getting Bigger ! ! !

Ralph via SAT phone (transcribed)
We are still 104 miles northwest of the Faroe Islands. We are still trying to beat the storm. The waves have kicked up to about 10 to 12 foot! They are still coming out of the southwest while we are going southeast. They are not helping us any at all. As a matter of fact they are hurting a little bit. It is kind of neat to see these big waves coming at us from the side. It is keeping us from going real fast. We have to go slow. But we are fine. We just hope to beat the storm.
We will talk to you later.
God bless
Bye

  1. Hi every one.
    They have no been spotted west of the Faroe Island.
    It happened when they called up "Torshavn radio",
    asking for assistance as the weather had come quite rough. Then all communication broke down, and MRCC (Marine Rescue command Center) sent away a rescue helicopter, they have been found and are all well, If they have left the boat or not was not mentioned.
