Solent Rescue

Little's “Bounder” sinks, 14 rescued
Bounder sinks, 14 rescued: Supersail World superyachting news from Yachting World magazine

Fourteen crew were rescued south of the Isle of Wight Saturday afternoon, when "Bounder" reportedly lost her keel.

The 55 Ft. Juan Kouyoumdjian-designed yacht “Bounder”, built by Goetz Custom Yachts in Rhode Island, and owned by former RORC Commodore Chris Little, was test sailing off St Catherine's Point Lighthouse on Saturday, June 30 (1330hrs) , when it capsized with severe keel problems.

The coastguard rescue helicopter “Whiskey Bravo” was scrambled and airlifted the 14 crew members to its base at Lee-on-the-Solent, Hants, approximately 30 minutes later. None of the casualties required medical attention as they showed no signs of hypothermia.

However it is always unfortunate that these thpe of accedints happen, as it could have been a disaster 14+crew.Any more details about the boat,condition/why it lost the keel more info could help others to inspect these bolts/type keels more often

Yeah casualities usually means they died. They should have been called rescuees or survivors or anything but.

Nah, in military and official talk, a casualty is anyone injured or killed.

Collateral is the guy who got hit because he was standing next to the guy you wanted to kill.

It has been in the news a lot lately because of a tactic where an armed force tries to sit as close as possible to some civilians, hoping for a propaganda victory when some of the civilians get hit by mistake. If you don't care about killing civilians, you can set people up to become collateral damage, then pretend to be outraged when they get killed.

It's all a matter of dialect. On the eastern side of the Atlantic, a casualty is someone who is injured and/or visits A&E; collateral damage is where some genius goes to take out one guy, and manages to take out another 600,000 by "mistake", or because they were sitting in the wrong place.

i must be a school teacher...hehe
glad the guys were alright, though a shame, it sounds like a very nice craft that met am untimely demise. how deep is it there? i wonder if it will be salvaged, if it sunk. i don't have charts handy to look at the area depths, though i thought all that area was pretty deep water.
