Triple Stars Recovered

Last November, the formerly Sausalito-based Island Packet 380 Triple Stars was abandoned by Rob Anderson during the North American Rally to the Caribbean (NARC) after his wife Jan, 59, was swept overboard when a massive wave broke on the boat. (He later recounted the events of November 11 in a Cruising World article.) Left adrift, Triple Stars was spotted 230 miles off Bermuda in March by a cruise ship, but wasn’t recovered until last week when some fishermen towed her into Ely’s Harbor on Bermuda. Found 26 miles southwest of the island, Triple Stars doesn’t appear too worse for wear, considering she’s spent the last eight months adrift. Though Rob Anderson has been notified of the recovery, there’s no word on if he’ll claim her.
