Whoa! That's a pretty good survival story. But I find the headline kind of ironic; "Safety training helps save family in schooner crash", it seems to me, if they truly had such great "safety training" they might have avoided a head on collision with a slow moving tug boat!

I hate the canal at night. They light the damn thing just enough to assist in confusing nav lights. "Is that a street light or a tug", words that I have spoken aloud. I haven't heard anything new regarding this story, but it was the talk of the dock when it happened.

Don't know about that, not having been there, but the first thing that struck me was that apparently none of them were wearing PFDs.

I thought about PFD's too, but you know...I probably wouldn't have been wearing one either.

Just saw this on SailingAnarchy... apparently the schooner is now for sale. I don't know what the final conclusion reached by the CG was for this incident but I'd be curious to find out...
