Experienced solo sailor missing at sea Search and rescue efforts are under way to find Robin Davie, 67, who left port in France on Saturday on a 300-mile journey to Falmouth, Cornwall. His brother reported him as overdue on Wednesday morning when there had been no contact. Mr Davie has sailed solo around the world three times and is entered in the 2022 Golden Globe race. The race organisers say they have "serious concern" and it is not thought he has an electronic tracking device or an emergency radio beacon for raising the alarm if he got into difficulty. He is understood to have a VHF radio that could potentially make contact with passing ships. 'No distress alerts' Wind conditions have been light to mild, and continue to be so. Mr Davie, from Falmouth, had travelled to Les Sables d'Olonne, in Vendée region of France, to fit a new mast and rigging.
