just watched the clip of the "other angle" on youtube, it's in 720p HD, so I pulled it up on the 40" LCD in the living room where I was able to see a good bit of detail that didn't show up on the small laptop screen.
The captain of the passenger ship already had the engines hard astern for at least 12 seconds at the time the original clip starts (total of 15+ seconds passed between the engines going hard astern and the short blast of the horn you hear 3 seconds into the original clip).
The captain managed to bring the ship to nearly a complete stop just outside of the storm wall, and most definitely would have collided with the sailboat had he not taken early action.
