Collision Mare with a fishing boat.

One more collision of a fishing boat with an Open 60, this time the Mare of Jorg Riechers. Jorg was training and had a full crew on the boat, it was night and they tried to avoid a fishing boat without lights or watch, even less AIS. Too late, they were lucky in not losing the mast. The Fishing boat run away without helping.

The talented German skipper that has for the first time a Open 60 saw his dreams very close to an end, he was very close to have the boat destroyed.

After many victories in mini racers and class 40, he is going to race the Barcelona world race with it (circumnavigation).
