The body of a sailor whose yacht was found washed ashore off the French coast has been found in a sea cove in Devon. Geoffrey Cole, 61, from Weymouth, Dorset, set sail from the town on September 21 bound for Swanage in his vessel Palamina but never arrived. The French coastguard found Mr Cole's 27ft boat washed ashore in the area of Griz Nez, near Calais and Boulogne, two days later. A spokesman for Dorset Police said Mr Cole's body was found yesterday in a sea cove just off Exmouth.
