'Golden Dawn - have you seen her?'
Have you seen this boat, called Golden Dawn of Kent? Or its solo skipper, Alastair Cruickshank? Friends and family of Alistair have not heard from him since October 2013, and are concerned.
It is thought that he could be in Portuguese waters, or he could have sailed further south and joined other boats in the yearly migration of sailing boats to the Caribbean.
Alastair has an EPIRB on board which has not been activated. However, it is not registered. Falmouth Coastguard has been notified (incident No. 110)
The boat is a 31ft sailing sloop - a Golden Hind 31, built in 1979. Its call sign is 2YTT.
Alastair is 26 years of age, is 190cm tall, of thin build and with blonde hair.
The boat was last heard of on October 24, 2013, when she was in Sada in North West Spain, close to A Coruna.
