The wife of a Scottish businessman has appealed for help in finding his whereabouts after his yacht was discovered empty during a 5,000-mile solo trip.
Colin Finnie (67) was last in contact with his family six days before his 45ft yacht Simba was found on Marsa Alam reef in the Red Sea on Friday 13 December, as International Boat Industry reports.
Finnie had been en route to Port Ghalib in Egypt, 350 miles from where his yacht was found abandoned, after setting out from Australia three months previously.
The wife of the retired engineer and former hotelier reportedly wrote on Facebook of her fears for Finnie, saying he was “in storms and low on fuel”.
