South African crew lost at sea

The families of Anthony Murray, Reginald Robertson and Jaryd Payne are raising funds to locate, properly examine for survivors, secure and bring to port the upturned catamaran hull that has been sighted in the Indian Ocean – most recently on June 5th 2015, 552NM SE from Reunion Island.
Experts advise the families that this is almost certainly Moorings A5130, the Leopard catamaran that was on a delivery trip to Phuket from Cape Town when all contact was lost with the crew on January 18th at the time of Cyclone Bansi.
The families of Reg, Jaryd and Anthony have been driving the  search for their loved ones for over four months, via a Facebook group and a Tomnod campaign, and with the help of official broadcasts to all ships in the area of drift as designated by the maritime authorities of South Africa and Australia.
This campaign is to raise funds to urgently establish if Jaryd, Anthony and Reg are alive in the hull or if the life-raft was deployed. The funds will also be used to properly bring the yacht to shore for investigation and examination by authorities, as well as for any legal costs that arise, for the families, out of this traumatic and ongoing incident.
