Is that the ding dong couple who tried to outrun the storm then anchored 200 yards off shore because "nothing bad was happening"?

I needed to ring Darwin anyway so why not ask him what's up with these clowns?


Next they will come to sailnet and lambaste lake sailors then regale us, all in text-speak, about their adventures on the high seas where once upon a time, whilst sailing along in pleasant rolling seas under a fair sky, they suddenly found themselves caught in The Great Hurricane and all survived (except a torn jib sail) due to their exceptional skipperism...because that's just how freaking good they are!

Sorry - no BFS for you!

Notice how the production boat was holding up pretty well to Cat 1 winds...before they beached it? Impressive.

Yes thats the same boat with the couple and their cat that was rescued earlier in the Chesapeake off Oceanview in Norfolk

A people that values its privileges above it's principles will soon lose both.

Hunter...B&R rig, stern scoop, arch...

yep the ones who left Portsmouth Friday, who were trying to make Naptown later today...6' seas and 40mph winds were enough for them to anchor about 400 yds from shore...

From the daily mail

Quote:
A couple living attempting to outrun Hurricane Irene were also rescued today in the Chesapeake Bay as their sailboat was battered by 6- to 8-ft seas and winds gusting to 45mph, rescue officials said.

Unable to launch rescue craft, two rescue crew members swam to the sailboat, pulled the sailors off and hauled them back to shore in the Willoughby section of Norfolk near the mouth of Chesapeake Bay.

The couple, who lived aboard with their cat

Looks like a larger Hunter. 40 - 50 feet.

Well, I learned something about Heavy Weather Sailing.

Now I guess this is a salvage situation.
