This 38 feet sail-boat was stolen during the night of January the 12th 2010 from in front of the marina of Mindelo, Capo Verde, where it was anchored. "ENEA" has a blue hull with a yellow line. It is registered in Switzerland. The details can be found on the families blog.

Update 2 March, 2010

This yacht was found abandoned in Maranhão/Brasil. A few Cape Verdeans were taken into custody charged with stealing the yacht. Initial concerns about a murder taking place on the yacht are on-going since a piece of human bone was found on board. The boat was sacked by locals and found with blood in the interior.
