Re: oops

Bad day, that's one sailing day I'd rather be in the office working!

Re: oops

Interesting that there was a second boat waiting its turn.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).

Re: oops

Bad judgement by the skipper.
Running above speed limit to pass a closing bridge....

Re: oops

Glad nobody was injured... it could have been terrible... (as opposed to just a proper punishment for a reckless attitude)

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

Re: oops

He's really lucky that he turned as his mast made contact with the bridge. Not sure if that was deliberate, but if he had kept going straight on, the mast would have come straight back into the cockpit.

Re: oops

I'm impressed by how much force it took before the mast failed. It lifted the bow out of the water almost 3 feet before it collapsed.

We have three rules;
No screaming.
No bleeding on the sails.
No slobbering on the charts.

Re: oops

Well I guess he or She got under the bridge.

Maybe they wanted a new mast anyway.. Who Knows....

Re: oops

Perhaps he planned on tying up at the bridge since he had all his fenders out!
