When coming up to a dock
, getting ready to load up onto a trailer, ALWAYS make sure you take the sail down very early!
We were about to reach the dock
, when the wind
started going approximately 7,000 MPH. We ricocheted off of the dock, and hit our boat trailer/vehicle. Nobody got hurt, but the driver was a little shaken up. The only damage to equipment
was some chunks of wood knocked off of the trailer and a small dent in the dock. No damage to our boat, thankfully!
