The U.S. Coast Guard will reportedly resume a search for the missing four crewmen of the Beneteau First 40.7 Cheeki Rafiki, a British-registered sailboat lost while en route from the Caribbean to the U.K. The 1,000-foot AMVER participating containership Maersk Kure was involved in the search on May 17-18 and came across a capsized hull and photographed it. No evidence of the crew was found, however.
An online petition asking the U.S. Coast Guard for a resumption of the search effort garnered 200,000 signatures.
The four missing sailors: Andrew Bridge, 21; James Male, 23; Paul Goslin, 56 and Steve Warren, 52.
