17 year old Eric David Schibley was sent out to sail in a boat operated by Visionquest. The crew wasn't that experienced so when they ran into a storm, the boat sank. Together with several teenagers he died. It was called a survival trip and it might be right when the crew was inexperienced to pronounce it like that.
It was one of the tragedies which claimed most lives in the troubled teenage industry but for the family of Eric David Schibley it didn't matter how many who died at the same time. They lost a son.
A real tragedy which has been remembered to this day.
May he rest in peace.
