Re: Bad yacht accident: two dead (one rescuer)
A passing thought on all of this:
Could it be that we have so many ocean bars over here that I am taking for granted that sailors and marine rescue crossing them know what to do and what not to do? You have so many fine anchorages and sailing grounds in Western Europe: Is it possible that the crew of the Meri Tuuli did not understand the dangers of 'closed harbours' and 'bar entrances'??
A bad day on a boat beats a good day in the office
