North West Passage woes...hope for Nina?...cruising economically
The families of the six Americans and one British subject missing in the Tasman Sea from the schooner Nina are not giving up, encouraged by a small sign found by an amateur viewer of satellite images – what could be a life raft on a lonely ocean. Read of the private search still ongoing.
