2011 Remembered: Tanker Vs. Sailboat

3 Jan

Blogger Craig Russell calls this (failed) effort by a sailboat racer to sneak across the bow of a massive cargo vessel in The Solent the "Bonehead Move Of The Year–2011," and it is hard to disagree with him. 

It's always amusing to watch the silly risks salboat racers are willing to take in the heat of the moment, but I bow before this skipper's complete loss of perspective and ability to weigh risk and benefit. (cont.)

Or at least to weigh it in any sort of meaningful way. Impressive in a sick kind of way. And very, very, expensive.
