I'd blame the charter company before I'd blame the captain. One sailing course a year ago does not a competent skipper make. It was the charter company that has the experience.
Anyway, nobody was hurt and, from looking at the photos, I'd say the damage was mostly cosmetic.
One thing's for sure, if he sticks with sailing I'll bet he'll keep his eyes glued to the chart and chartplotter from now on!
