Re: Close call! Who had rights?
Went out same day last year. It was enough to put me off doing it again for a few years!
Don't let it do that! I've been taking people out to watch the Angels for years, staying far away from the spetator fleet (until I got stupid this year!). This year several AC 45's strafed us at about 20 knots (pre-race, while we were outside the "fleet"). What a thrill! With hydro foils and rigs 130 feet tall, the 72's are going to be off the charts! Hope to see ya out there 2013!
Have you noticed all those big power boats that sit in the marina all year round, and only go out 4th July and fleet week? How capable sailors do you think they are?
Yeah...In fact, you reminded me of this incident which also happend this weekend! http://www.sailnet.com/forums/seaman...tml#post931473
