The Association notes with deep regret the abandonment of the well known east coast S&S 34 “Morning Tide” of Byron Bay early on 12th June 2012. Details are unclear but a combination of engine failure, rig problems and severe weather conditions with huge seas and 45-50kt winds forced Allan and his crew member Sara Crozier to abandon Morning Tide. We believe that the yacht was taking on water and may have sunk subsequent to the rescue. We do not have any up to date contact details for Alan, but if any assistance is needed the Association is very happy to do whatever we can. For the ABC News report, please click here.
