Yacht Fail

Posted By Ben Goulding, 9 July, 2009 | permalink

During a 20 boat race, a risky maneuver in choppy seas left one crew red-faced, perched on the top of a rock.

Skipper Arthur Manning and his crew were taking part in the Royal Channel Islands Yacht Club’s 14th Waller Harris two-handed triangle race.

It happened soon after the crew left Binc, in north-west France on the last day of the race, as they tried to make up ground on their 19 rival boats. Disaster struck as their 36ft yacht sailed too close to the rocky outlet of La Longue and consequently ground to a halt.

We should feel bad for them, but you’ve got to laugh haven’t you. A sight like that isn’t something you see every day!
