I wonder what happened in the next frame. Most likely the spinnaker let go. But if not, he was still attached to that big anchor. Other than replacing his mast, standing rigging, and a spinnaker, his biggest problem may be getting the bown smudges off the cockpit benches!

The video is at the bottom of the linked page in post #1. Other than the rig and some "freighter rash" he seems to be simply sliding down the side of the vessel. I wonder if the crew was actually fully aware, and if they stopped at all...

The tanker will buff out for sure, but not the sailboat.

Maybe he didn't yell 'Starboard!' Loud enough.

No I disagree... the sailboat was nearly buffed out.
