Upturned hull spotted in Indian Ocean may be missing SA catamaran

Nearly four months after contact was lost with the three-man South African crew of a catamaran in the Indian Ocean, an upturned catamaran has been sighted in the Indian Ocean.

Jared Blows, spokesperson for the Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre (MRCC) in Cape Town, said on Monday that a cargo vessel had sighted the upturned hull about 1 078km east of Mauritius.

He said it could not be said with 100% certainty that the hull sighted by the cargo vessel was that of the missing catamaran Sunsail RC044-978, which set out from Cape Town for a delivery trip to Phuket, Thailand, on December 14.
