Re: Canadian Olympian's trans-Atlantic trip suffers 'catastrophic capsize'

Spooner said he was told a large wave overtook the boat and it was unable to right itself as designed.

I hate when that happens

I guess that somebody screw up: the designer or the ones that charged the boat or both. On such a light boat I bet the provisions needed to make the voyage have a big influence on the boat stability, depending how they are stored.
