On The Rocks
 
Some one was not paying attention. This is really sad to see.

Sailboat runs aground near CBBT | WAVY.com | Virginia Beach, Va.

Looks like it could be an O'Day 30'.

Not a good place to leave the boat with the sails still up.

Was it foggy down there on Friday night?

Very sad looking , A 30' boat doesn't look so big compared to them rocks....

Ouch.

Have to say the skipper is going to take some s--t for a pic of their boat, on the rocks with the sails still flying.

I tried to find out some info about why, but know seems to know anything. There was not any fog. wInds were ENE 15 to 20.

From the text attached to the pic it seems that they were picked up from the water which suggests that they went overboard when they hit.

Might explain why the main is still up?

I have a nickle that says they jumped. It will be interesting to hear the story, if it ever comes out.
