Together with 6 other teenagers and some staff members from Visionquest, 16 year old Carles Lucas died in the Gulf of California, when the boat he was sent on sank.
Why did they sail out into this bad weather? They were not trained sailors.
For the family of Charles Lucas the downing in the Gulf of California was a tragedy they had to share with 6 other families. Hopefully this tragedy will never be repeated.
