Still Looking For The Lady Domina

The mystery behind the disappearance of the Lady Domina remains.  To date, no one has reported seeing the yacht since she left St. Martin March 31st, 2013.  She was headed across the Atlantic Ocean en route to Norway.  The first planned stop was the Azores.


After the families reported the Lady Domina had not arrived, an alert was sent out.  The inquiry following the disappearance turned up more questions than it answered.  The yacht was reportedly cleared out of Puerto Rico by the U.S. Coast Guard on April 5th, 2013, even though the crew of the Lady Domina never planned to go to Puerto Rico.

Subsequently, friends of the crew overheard the Coast Guard side of a discussion in which a yacht identified as the Lady Domina requested weather outside of Puerto Rico.  The May 3rd, 2013, call placed the Lady Domina above water long after authorities concluded she sank in a late April storm.  


The U.S. Coast Guard refused to discuss the supposed call.  Instead, inquiries were referred to Rescue Coordination Center heading up the search.  By then, they had suspended the search.

In June of 2013, a professional skipper reported a yacht like the Lady Domina was being towed by Sea Rescue near St. Martin.  The local Coast Guard was alerted could not identify any instance of towing a yacht like the Lady Domina during the time.
