Re: 2.4 Million Yacht Aground and Dismasted

Must have hit pretty hard, I hope no ones injured too badly.
I think the first beaching I remember due to electronics was way back in the early 70's when the New York Yacht Club committee boat ran nicely onto Narragansett beach (near the entrance to the West Passage of Narraganset Bay). The Captain on board had set the auto pilot and then fell asleep, the power yacht did just what it was instructed to do and ran nice an straight onto the beach under power.
The electronics are only as good as the person using them, I like my paper charts, using them forms a picture in my mind of the surrounding waters, something that's hard to do from a limited area screen.
Had to hit pretty hard to snap a mast like that.

Re: 2.4 Million Yacht Aground and Dismasted

My bad on the green can being nearby. I thought they had hit the rocks east of Goose Island (visible on the right side of the Navionics shot above). But they hit East Goose Rock, or rocks right near it.

Re: 2.4 Million Yacht Aground and Dismasted

Take a look at the Panbo post on this. Ben shows a great set of examples of how different charts show this area. We can only hope the skipper tells us what happened.

Re: 2.4 Million Yacht Aground and Dismasted

well it shows it can happen to anyone ..you may remember the royal navy parked a ship on a rock near Norfolk island off australias east coast a couple of years ago apparently the cursor on the chart plotter was positioned on top of the rock ... well that's what they said anyway....

Coast Guard, Wayfarer Marine respond to sailboat aground off Lasell Island | PenBay Pilot

The boat is a Hylas 70.... Wonder how a profesional Cap made such a big mistake....
