There’s discussion of this incident on other forums. Easily findable via google.

Looks like another steering/autopilot issue.

Terrible time to be off Nova Scotia in any sailboat.

I have tried to find a few articles but there appears to be no report of any boat failures.

I wonder what happened

Suggests it was taking on water, lets hope its not the same issue I had. Yacht seems to be intact so whether they'll tow it or leave to take its course and locate it after the storm to bring it in. Be interesting as a manufacturer to find out.

Submarine - a surface vessel capable of submerging.

Hanse 495 - a surface vessel capable of surviving most conditions, hopefully all, so lessons need to be learned if that's not the case.  If abandonment was due to being in the wrong place at the wrong time, for the crew that was on board, then it's not the fault of the boat.
