The Marine Flower 2 is a Sundeer 64 ketch. They were designed as a couple boat and are rigged for sailing from the cockpit. They have probably completed more circumnavigations than any other boat their size, often only sailed by 2.
There was nothing wrong with the boat.
The owner/skipper was inexperienced, at least with this boat.
He should not have been there.
