The Moquini has been found upside down minus her keel

The yacht Moquini, a Fast 42, which went missing with all her six crew in September
last year has been identified by a salvage crew floating upside down 500 miles off the south-west coast of South Africa.

The yacht’s keel is missing. This may explain the single blip from the EPIRB
transmitted on Friday morning 16 September last year, as an EPIRB will not transmit when more than half a metre below the water.

Massive public support enabled a two week private air search to be conducted when Moquini was first reported missing.
