Santana 22 for sale on Craigslist
Apparently he salvaged the boat and listed it for sale. Yachtsea
More sea than yacht according to the last pictures of it.

Yup, Santana drivers gotta be made of sterner stuff to sail out on our Bay… A couple of months ago, a Santana 22 took 5th over-all in the Coastal Cup (San Francisco to Santa Barbara), a race in which there were several broken booms and two dismastings, including a Cal 40 that was using this as a tune-up for the TransPac. Now, if you want excitement, you ought to sail here when it’s windy. The following picture was from the Lightship I in ’06 (that’s going INSIDE of Mile Rock and the “Rock Garden” mind you). Winds were in the mid twenties to mid thirties on the way back from the light bucket and we got 27kts boat speed recorded in one 30 second burst although our average for that run was only 21kts.

|ImASonOfaSailor||He must have been a Beginner! He should have not even been that close to land! usually where a wave breaks means there is shallow waters or something....|

|CBinRI||The Sail article said his insurance company paid the salvage costs (2500) and that it was a Santana 22.|

|sailingdog||IIRC, from when this first happened...i think it was a 26' boat, and the owner was charged for the salvage costs of recovering the boat... which were more than the boat was worth. I don't believe he was insured either.|
