Just Starting to get news articles About the loss of a vessel I can best describe as one on which I always wanted to Sail but never did. It is always sad to hear of the loss of any vessel, tall ships make that loss feel closer to home. All initial reports indicate that all hands are safe and accounted for - that is the silver lining.

According to the Class Afloat web site, which at the time of writing this article has no mention of the incident; The Concordia, was specifically designed and built in 1992 for their programs.

Currently there seems to be no information About the factors leading up to the incident or what exactly happened although on news source states the vessel "capsized and sank" and suggests sea conditions may have been a factor.

Friends and relatives in Canada seeking information on Canadian citizens believed to be on the SV Concordia can contact Foreign Affairsī Emergency Operations Centre in Ottawa by calling either 1-800-387-3124 or 1-613-996-8885.

our thoughts and best wishes go out to the crew, family, and friends during what must be a very trying time.

UPDATE: best news source seems to be the CBC:
