An open letter to the Maritime Rescue Coordination Center Papeete (http://www.mrcc.pf) Very large thank you

When Reboot s lower starboard shroud shattered 1200 nautical miles from the nearest shore we were (with English understatement) “a bit concerned.” We contacted our shore support who contacted the United States Coast Guard. Given our geographic location we were handed off to MRCC Papeete. From that time until we dropped anchor they maintained an “Overwatch” of our position and progress. This included manning the signal station at Hiva-Oa to assure our funal approach was monitored and we anchored safely.From the Captain and crew of Reboot our sincere thanks for your professionalism and support.
