Glad at least ONE boat had their eyes open! Hard to tell, but it looks like the sailboat may not have been able to see around the bulkhead. Not the way to find out if anyone's there, though.

Look at the smoke coming from the big boat. He had to put engines full astern . The captain had to stop the boat and that at the entry of a narrow port. That is a very dangerous thing to do. Without movment the boat has no steerege and it is at the mercy of any current that may exist.

I'm just wondering if the Yachtie on that sail boat had to change his filled & wet pants??
The Master of the Balmoral would take something like this in stride. But then it wouldn't be the first time for a fool to cross his bow like that. Have had it happen to me a few times.
The sail boat demanding his right-o-way because he is a sail boat. WAIT!? His sails are furled, he is under power.... Why that makes him a power driven vessel... Only he believed that boat salesman that he always have the Right of way.

Also look at the boat's stern, and how his wake overtook him from behind. He stopped very fast, and then was pitching from side to side. Must have been very uncomfortable - even dangerous - for passengers up top.
