If you lost your board and sail (appears they separated); I located them and can tell you where to look for them. I did get the board to a stationary areas and tell a remaining sailor where he may recover it but, I can not be sure he was interested in recovering someone else's gear. There were two Vans remaining at the launch one Sprinter type and one Chevy (?) camper. Perhaps they are spending the night there.

Email me at 2dream1@gmail.com

I hope the owner is ok.


Best of luck,

M

We got a hold of the owners of the gear. (thanks Eric)

I will leave this thread here in case someone else has picked up the gear and needs these breadcrumbs to find the rightful owner (I asked one remaining sailor to kindly recover the board that was near his launch).


Once the gear is recovered, I will delete this post.

I saw them trying to recover the gear yesterday at the Wall. Pretty challenging in 30+ !

Unbelievable! We got everything back. Thanks to Mark! Everything was right where he said he last saw it. At first we tried to drag it back but that was a disaster. I was afraid wed have to cut it all loose just to survive! Eventually we went back to the island and barely made it. Once we broke it all down and loaded it up on The leeward side we were fine!

Awesome that all is well.
Now, how/why did this disconnectus happen?
This will be helpful for the future, maybe even prevent a drowning.
