Such sad news this morning: Last night, Hans Horrevoets was swept off the deck of ABN AMRO II somewhere in the Mid-Atlantic. Although the crew managed to recover his body, they were unable to resuscitate him. He had been in the water for about one hour. A courageous man, for sure, circling his way around the globe. May he sail on forever in quieter waters. My condolences to his family and friends.
