Boat Radio – Disaster strikes a cruising family


On July 18th, the Govatos family lost everything when their catamaran was destroyed on an uncharted reef off Huahine, French Polynesia. Since that fateful day, they’ve faced a barrage of criticism, a great deal of it from people who don’t know the whole story.

This is it. This is the whole story. It is a cautionary tale but it is also a tale of triumph over great adversity. You will be informed and you will, we promise, be inspired by their fortitude.

Danny and Belinda Govatos spoke to Boat Radio from Auckland, New Zealand, where they are staying with friends. At times, the VoIP call is a little wobbly. Stick with it. It is worth it.
