What a nice building in red and white in there? Could that have a purpose for navigation? Maybe it is even depicted on the chart for that area?
It's funny how people trust others, turn of common sense and "flock" like that?

Looks to me like the perfect example of why sailboats should be required to have brake lights. Turn signals wouldn't be a bad idea either.

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.

Comment from the youtube site for the video shows what they were thinking:

They hit the wreck not the rock. The trick is to go in between the two as saves loads of time but you need a good navigator. Even the third boat is too far out, about 40 feet from the visible rocks is good.

I realize that... Last year we actually grounded an X-Yacht, he probably realized that I had local knowledge - He just didn't realize how local.. So they was stuck a little to the wrong side... Funny thing is that if he'd gone outside he would have passed us, as he's a lot faster on a broad reach than we are.
Anyways I know what it's like when the adrenaline is pumping...

"OK, we're really gaining on them. We're lower and faster, hold what you've got! Damn, it's like they're parked or something! Let's go inside them, we have enough speed to punch right through their lee!


CRAP!!!!"

I don't know why you all are picking on these skippers. I thought it was quite thoughtful, the way that second boat tried to free the first one off it's grounding.
