Beneteau loses rudder..boat sinks

This Benny 40.7 had it's rudder snap en route from Nap town to Newport and the 6 person crew could not stop the water. Coast Guard rescued the 6 crew but sadly the boat was lost.
Six rescued from sailboat off Shinnecock Inlet -- Annapolis -- Newsday.com
Not a good weekend for LI waters as a J80 racing lost its' keel...again all hands safe.

Boats are just falling apart left & right, or would that be port & starboard?

Actually with the rudders - this would be "Boats falling apart Forward to Aft"...

The J Boat that lost it's keel was a J/80. All of these issues have my attention - I have an offshore race scheduled for late this month. Well be paying a lot of attention to safety.

Safety first, race second.
