it was not so much the winds that did the damage to the boats but the large seas. it is a shallow bay and with waves coming in around 3 metres the moorings did not really have enough scope
to handle it.
Aparantly it is the biggest maritme sinking of vessels in Australia
ever. here there is just wreckage everywhere. In the morning we are of to try to refloat one of the luckier ones which landed on the beach. I must say that the insurance
companies seem to be doing a good job in helping be as speedy with claims etc as they can. but it is still a sad sight to walk around here at the moment.
