45' Cat Capsizes [Pic]



I would love a chance to be onboard one of these things when they're the right way up & flying along though...

Would never happen to a mono? Maybe you need to look at what happened to Rambler in the Fastnet race, monos do capsize and often that is the last we see of them!

Hi sprit cat - I dont think Wolfaroo was being nasty - just a bit mischievous. At least thats the way I am taking it!

Awesome boats.... was in Cascais when it was there... got in on the 3rd day of the series... just wish I'd had a decent camera... not just my phone.
Got to meet some of the crew from assorted flags... nice bunch a guys...
By the way... the rib behind was the pace boat... give you an idea of the speeds...
