On 18 January 2015 a luxurious catamaran disappeared while sailing from Cape Town to Thailand.
Three South Africans, Anthony Murray, Reg Robertson and Jaryd Payn had left Cape Town harbour on 14 December 2014, en route to Phuket.
Exactly a year after the catamaran disappeared, it was reported that an overturned hull had been sighted 113m off Cape Recife, near Port Elizabeth.
CapeTalk’s Pippa Hudson on Thursday spoke to Diane Coetzer, a sister to the skipper, who said the families were still not certain if the sighted hull is the one that disappeared with their loved ones.
