Initial Notification: On 25-FEB-2021, the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary staff contacted their NOAA SSC to request a drift estimate for a disabled/dismasted 30’ sailing vessel PLAN B for potential relocation/recovery. The vessel was the subject of a USCG search & rescue activity on the previous afternoon and was too low in the water for effective towing operations at that time. The vessel’s last known position was roughly 31 nautical miles West of Monterey, CA. No known pollution threat.
