Re: Well that's gotta be embarrassing!
It seems the video has a live audio feed... around here the skipper/pilot of the freighter would be blowing his whistle enough to wake the dead - didn't hear any such thing on the video soundtrack.
The main and kite would have created a significant blind spot.. there's absolutely no evidence of any kind of avoidance manoeuver... I don't think they knew he was there. Very fortunate not to have been utterly crushed....
