Re: One dead, four missing in Farallones sailboat race
It sounds like they let their desire to bring home a trophy cloud their judgement and got too close to Southeast Farallone as they were making the turn for their run back to SF Bay. The Farallones, particularly the windward side, are not a place to take lightly. A very sad event, but it sounds like it was completely preventable.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
