Creighton's Naturally - not lost yet
On Tuesday night the boat was still being driven quickly towards the Spanish coast, but a change in weather conditions has slowed her progress towards a grounding. Speaking from Germany on Wednesday morning, 8th October, her owner, Stuart Bowen-Davies, told madforsailing that she was still afloat with no major damage beyond broken steering gear, and he was trying to coordinate a rescue. The Spanish coastguard had told him that conditions were too rough to get a boat out to her and attach a tow today, but the wind was moderating, and only five to ten knots of breeze were expected tomorrow. Bowen-Davies added, 'I'm hopeful that she will be safely under tow tomorrow and will be saved.'
