Re: OK, now I understand......

We'll have to wait for the Inquiry to report before making too much of this but continuing to have a race run through an are where there have already been a number of incidents reported would seem to be inviting trouble for the race organisers and the marine authority, if any had jurisdiction, that controlled the waters.
So I can see layers to this issue but the ColRegs will probably be paramount. I note the damage to the yacht is said to be on the port side of the bow and that the RRS may have some application to the yacht as well.

Re: OK, now I understand......

Both the HK and Chinese authorities have concluded, after investigating the matter, that no actions will be taken aganist V11 and crew.
This post and some of the other comments in this thread is just so sad to read, but actually a good example of many of the things that are currently wrong with the world.
Nothing less.

Sounds an awful lot like some back room political deal to me. Money talking again......

Yes, of course, that is the most likely explanation.

And comment is proving my very point too.
