Tony Bullimore capsize its new 105ft giant racing cat

Tony has bad luck...or it is more than that?

Now he capsizes its new giant cat while doing a "shakedown" sail test:

Seems like Bullimore either trains his crews in his own image or employs them because they reflect his gung-ho thinking.

Once before I got criticised on this board for my attitude" but I'll say it again: I'm really pleased this man doesn't live in my part of the world because I could get really pissed watching my tax dollar spent saving his sorry a$$ over and over again.

It must be nice having governments around the world funding your rescues while you use your bucks funding your next misadventure. Maybe I should spend more time figuring out how he does it.

Isn't this a repeat of the boating scene from "The Thomas Crown Affair"?
