Cam,

That sounds like a nice half-day adventure! Fun outing for you, but a hard lesson for them.

Any photos?? Video?? Yeah, remote internet rubbernecking... horrible ain't it...

Ignoring a gale warning isn't too bright... they could have easily gotten killed... did they even think about that... probably...most of the night. I wonder if the insurance company will pay out or not... this might be considered negligence on the owner's part. Too bad the boat had to pay the price... I happen to like the Tartan 37.

Too many people don't think of a good anchor as safety gear... I know I've used an anchor several times to keep a boat in one spot rather than letting her drift back and get into more trouble.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Good work!

Thanks for taking care of fellow sailors, even though they made poor choices.

An expensive lesson that they are unlikely to forget, I expect.

Give them credit

At least they called seatow and stuck with the boat. They didn't call the coast guard to lift them off.

Nice work, Cam. Just curious, what boat did you guys go out on for the rescue. Sounds like it was quite seaworthy.

If the boat was that hard aground, did anyone try setting a kedge to a halyard to try and heal her a bit before dragging it off the beach? Was anything done to lessen the strain on the boat while hauling her off?
