Tribute to Laura Gainey from Picton Castle

December 8th, 2006:

Laura Gainey was washed overboard from the deck of the Barque Picton Castle. Unfortunately, she was not found. The search for her was called off when the clock passed the 36 hour maximum time-frame, at which time it was unlikely that one would survive hypothermia.

However, the Picton Castle continued the search beyond that time frame. Barque Picton Castle had placed a tribute to Laura on their website, but the link I previously provided here is no longer there.
