Sailors stumble upon ‘ghost ship’ in Bermuda Triangle

(ORDO NEWS) — A truly creepy story happened to the researchers of the Ocean Research Project when they went out into the ocean.

The sailors stumbled upon a “ghost ship” drifting 1200 km from Bermuda, with no one on board.

Two ships from the Ocean Research Project stumbled upon an abandoned boat in the Atlantic Ocean.

The researchers noticed that the sail of the boat was not raised, the engine was not running, and “there was no sign of the presence of anyone on it.”

Worried that someone might get hurt, a couple of sailors decided to go aboard and check it out. One of the crew members, Matt Rutherford, filmed himself as he got closer to the boat.

‚ÄúThis is a horribly derelict sailboat from the Irish Yacht Club. I have no idea what’s inside, but I’m going to go and have a look and I hope I don’t find any bodies or anything,” Rutherford said in his video.

When he ventured to board the boat, he noted that he was afraid to open doors and cupboards. Fortunately, looking around, the man realized that there was no one on the boat.

The fate of the yacht

The researchers decided to tow the boat to land, but it turned out to be not so easy. After spending 47 days at sea, the crew began to run low on fuel, so he convinced a passing freighter to stop and give them some gasoline.

Alas, in the end, the sailors were forced to cut the towline after it wrapped itself around the rudder and threatened to cut it off.

The yacht is thought to have belonged to skipper Alan McGettigan of the Royal Irish Yacht Club. He and his crewmates Declan Hayes, Morgan Crow and Tom Mulligan were rescued by a Greek freighter 102km north of Bermuda when their yacht was wrecked.

Alan activated the emergency beacon and they left the boat in the water. Nine weeks later, Matt and his team stumbled upon her.
