Did anyone read the account in Sail magazine or Cruising World this past issue about the boat that got hit by the bow wave of a large freighter? They didn't see the freighter until the last minute and didn't have time to veer off (self steering engaged, preventers on). One of the guys jumped off, the boat rolled, the sails got shredded, etc... Perhaps they were on a collision course, jumped off at the last minute, the boat didn't roll but it was OK for the most part, but left behind the people...?
