The tragic incident involving an American couple, Ralph Hendry and Kathy Brandel, has sent shockwaves through the sailing community.

The couple, who hailed from Virginia, had embarked on a journey of exploration and adventure aboard their catamaran yacht named ‘Simplicity’ in the serene waters of the Caribbean.

Their idyllic voyage took a harrowing turn when three prisoners, Trevon Robertson, Ron Mitchell, and Atiba Stanislaus, managed to escape from custody at the South Saint George’s Police Station in Grenada. Seizing an opportunity, the fugitives hijacked the couple’s yacht, which had been docked near Saint George’s, Grenada’s capital.
