Two airplanes and two navy boats have continued the search for the “Tunante II” Argentine sailboat and its four Argentine crew members, who made an emergency call to inform a storm turned the ship upside down on Tuesday and went missing since then.

“The planes have been searching through the sea since today morning. Brazilian navy tells us we can keep high hopes because the waters have calmed since the storm and that helps the search,” Nicolás, son of Alejandro Vernero, one of the four missing crew members, told reporters.

Argentine navy boats sent by Defense Minister Agustín Rossi are helping in the exploration to find the ship, which went missing around 180 miles away from the shore of Porto Alegre city with renowed eye specialist Jorge Benozzi on board.
