Oh man, this sucks. Another casualty of the NARC storm:

Event Information for World Cruising Club: Caribbean 1500

I'm getting confused here...the NARC and Carib 1500 are different races right?

Lifesling anyone?

This happened in Kemah/Galveston Bay - the area where I race. Not much freeboard on that boat - and they still couldn't bring her on board. Makes you wonder...

Re: Beyond the "Edge"

A pretty bad scene in the Clipper race. Pooped by a big wave in 40-60 knots - 4 hurt pretty seriously:

My guess is that there was insufficient flotation in a chop to right the boat.

Add lots of positive flotation and practice regularly, or else get a keelboat

I've been in this situation, could have died, that water is COOOOOOLD, a wetsuit only works for a little while.
