Re: Team Vestas Wind grounded in the VOR
Aren't these guys supposed to be professionals? It's one thing to perhaps lose a rig when you get rolled in the Southern Ocean, or in a storm. But to run aground and lose the boat? Even if you draw 20+ feet, there are lots of deep places to sail fast in. I've been on a ketch where we banged the bottom while racing, but we raised the centerboard and kept going. Did they forget they're not in a dinghy?
