    Re: Name of an American woman lost at sea

    Alan,

    Sue Howell was lost along with 18 others in the sinking of the Marques on June 3, 1984 in a sailing race near Bermuda. The ship was caught in a sudden squall about 0400 local time and rolled over and sank in less than thirty seconds according to survivors.


    Here's a message I wrote about the tragedy for the "38Talk" group last year to mark the thirtieth anniversary:
