Re: sailboat and ferry collide!

This has been a topic before but is worth mentioning again that ferries often go WAY too damned fast in conditions where visibility is limited. I guess they must use radar as an excuse but as we all know radar misses stuff, especially sailboats. Keeping a schedule is no excuse for running down small craft.
