Re: HMS Bounty (replica) has sunk....

14 of the 16 crew were rescued. One (Claudene Christian) found, but she could not be revived. Captain (Robin Walbridge) is still missing.
The ship was at sea because that's where ships are safest. It's common practice to leave harbour in the face of a storm rather than be battered against the pier. In this case, the Bounty lost power and thus the ability to pump the bilge and fight the storm.

Claudene Christian is a distant relative of the real Fletcher Christian...

Claudene Christian was the great-great-great-great-great-granddaughter of Fletcher Christian
