Two additional, good stories about these "expert" sailors:
This one seems to be a 2014 article from the Newport Daily News
Not only did those sailors leave on the wrong date, they also went the wrong way. How could they end up 190 nm SE of Cape Cod when they should have been headed SW? At least we can say the one good thing about them that they were not stricken by trackline attachment syndrome!
