I love the last comment “We were going to have our grandchildren with us that day. I guess we were lucky.” Really? That would be like me deciding I want to go fly a helicopter with my daughters and I think I can do it because I saw someone do it on YouTube. Stupidity of people never seems to stop amusing us. And how dare the rental agency for charging them for recovery..

I totally agree with the tone of the article and the comments about personal responsibility. But I'm still surprised that they rented a sailboat to someone without more evidence of ability. In SF Bay, you can't charter a boat that size without at least Basic Coastal Cruising or equivalent on your sailing resume.
