Re: sailboat and ferry collide!
I can't see how they can blame the ferry capt. I'm sure its local sailing ground for the 27 sailboat capt. and he must have known he was in the shipping channel, so to leave the helm and go below deck sounds like he was going for a Darwin award.
Endeavour E-32 "Samara"
I am the Capt of my ship but sometimes I think I had more fun just being the cabin boy.
