Hauled off their boat for damaged sails.

Oh, my gosh!

Glad they're okay, but the boat looks pretty good in the picture.

Ironic, isn't it? A top of the line catamaran, a Gunboat 55, dismasted and abandoned; an old monohull raceboat dismasted and abandoned, and now a 40 ft. trimaran.

Perhaps those of us who questioned going out into those storms were correct to do so.

Yeah and Condors are some of the best tri's built. Can't believe they bailed on this boat. Wish I was in the area to try and salvage.

Maybe no spare sails? Maybe not enough fuel to return to land or get elsewhere without sails? Maybe an emergency health issue?

As is usually the case there's too much we don't know, unless they tell us what happened and the newspapers get it right.

I think a CF member owns or used to own that boat.


Edit: Yep. Just checked.

If he was talking about Sedona it wasn't dismasted. Torn sails.

Yeah, I thought so also, that's why I asked. Must be another one but did not see anything in the news about a dismasted boat.

Yes, I did. But you're right, it was not dismasted. I s****d up.

re: Another rescue in USA-Trio

I wasn't there, don't know any of the details, but from the pictures/video it sure looks like another case of the boat being able to handle more than the crew. I hope we hear the details at some point, as I'd really like to know the actual conditions as opposed to what it looks like in a photo seen from a comfortable couch.

re: Another rescue in USA-Trio

One doesn't know if they had spare sails.

One doesn't know if they were prepared for how bone-chilling the cold was.

This one feels sad to see the boat left to the elements like that, but we should give them the benefit of the doubt here......there's so much we just don't know.

re: Another rescue in USA-Trio

Ann - I usually agree with you but not on this one. The whole cotton pickin world knew this storm was coming and was going to be nasty. We have friends in the Bahamas and they talked about it.

Yet these guys ignored the weather and played macho and sailed into it. This in my opinion is an idiot who endangered this crew, himself, the coast guard and abandoned the boat.

This is my opinion is inexcusable.
