Re: Bad yacht accident: two dead (one rescuer)

The boat seems bigger to me:

Certainly a X yacht, probably a 442.

It seems confirmed by local sources: They were trying to enter the river bar...that was closed to boats smaller than 35m.

I read that the mayday was given by another sailboat. Maybe two that were traveling together? One risked while the other watched?
