So, I live on an island in NC.
I've noticed the Coast Guard Helicopters working over time today.
If I walk out the door I can see the intercostal waterway, but that would be too risky for him to navigate. So, I'm sure he decided to travel the ocean. (That's what they've been scanning today, but they do this a lot, I just noticed it has gone on longer than usual today and for all I know it could be unrelated).
Technically, if he is hauling tail, I guess he could be to NC by now, planning to either cut over to Bermuda, or head on to the Bahamas.
You can't really run a 72 ft yacht on your own. I would assume he has a crew, and if your boat owner shows up and says "Lets go" you don't really question it?
Unless it is a sailboat (which I haven't been able to clarify), he's going to have to pull in somewhere to get fuel soon.
I'll check my VHF radio and let you know what I find out.

Reason: VHF Radio is marine band, where the Coast Guard announces alerts.
