wooden yacht

On the 16th of July, 1995, the body of a man washed ashore on an uninhabited island north of the Netherlands. He was estimated to be anywhere between 20-years-old to 55-years-old. He had dark hair and stood at around 5 feet 9 inches tall. Weeks earlier the remains of a wooden yacht washed up on the same island. It was theorised that the man who washed ashore had been sailing the yacht before falling overboard and drowning. The man carried no identification. However, the sail of the yacht had the initials “HB” which led to speculation that the sail came from Herne Bay sailing club in England. A DNA profile was extracted from the man but still his identity remains unknown.
