Dutch Sailor Missing in the Atlantic

yandy106091Dutch sailor Sietse Hagen left the port of Tenerife heading for the Caribbean on January 15th, 2014. Since his departure, now over 60 days ago, he has not reported home. His friends and family, as well as the Dutch sailing community, are deeply concerned about the well-being of this very experienced sailor.

Sietse Hagen is sailing a 27 foot Gib’Sea Flush Poker named Pokerface, small but well prepared for long voyages. He carries no satphone or SSB radio. The boat is recognizable by its fixed spray hood and the black painted stern. Sietse has been reported missing to the local and international authorities, but all help in keeping a lookout for his boat would be very much appreciated. If you have any information that could help finding Sietse please contact the Netherlands Coast Guard or your local police.
