Looks like a Mac 26X.
I suspect they forgot to fill the ballast, got knocked down, and with all the hatches open, it flooded quickly and the combined water inside and the flooded mainsail prevented it from self righting.
Glad to hear everyone survived, of course.
Of course, it also shows how well a Mac's positive floatation works ;-)
If a man speaks at sea where there is no woman to hear, is he still wrong?
