34' Sailboat Capsizes in SF Bay 100 Yards From Marina

Has anyone read about this story? Last weekend a 34' sailboat capsizes with 30 people aboard just 100 yards from the dock. One of the children required CPR and thankfully looks like he will recover.

I have read several internet news articles but not a single one gives any details about the boat type or manufacturer. They just reference her name "Khaleesi".

Assuming the boat hadn't taken on a large amount of water, what in the world could cause a 34' sailboat to flip over in relatively calm waters? None of the articles, many of which have quotes from Coast Guard personnel mention carrying too many passengers so it really makes me wonder?

I have heard mono's that lose their keel can do this. I don't know anything about multi's but understand that if they flip they don't come back up?

Here's one of the articles.

It depends. 30 Europeans would probably be OK, weight wise. 30 Americans not so much.

That's not a nice description of a 4 year old child in the water.

And since there was no loss of life even the most PC persons would grant us the privilege of a joke for this event.

Seem to remember a similar event in New York on a Macgregor a few years back.. 15 odd people aboard that time with a more tragic result

Was not referring to a person.

The object could have been anything interesting enough to cause all of the occupants to move to one side of the vessel - and cause the capsize.

Well, for one, it wasn't a sailboat.

I'm very surprised that so many find this story humorous.

A fellow sailor lost their boat and a five year old boy remains in the hospital after almost drowning.

This was a near tragedy and I was hoping that local CF members might have better information than the news is reporting.

Shameful if you ask me.
