Gallic Pride takes a hit in Dublin Bay

Incredible capsize of the MOD 70 Spindrift in Dublin during the Route des Princes

Well there multi -hulls for you !!!!

Certainly enough rescue assets !!!



I beleive they are trying to break Steve Fossets Round Ireland Record. Not a good start.

Those things aren't boats though. I'm not sure what they are, and they're sure fast, but they're not boats.
