Re: Three Canadian Sailors Rescued off Hawai

One has to wonder just what repair the climber thought he could do at the masthead under those conditions. I've been halfway up a 50' mast at sea in somewhat milder but still rough conditions, and what he was doing was pretty unhealthy... even on a well found vessel. And if the shrouds really "pulled out of the deck", well, that sort of construction isn't really compatible with offshore sailing.

I too am glad that they survived, but I don't think that whitewashing the facts that lead to the need for rescue serves us well. This has all the earmarks of a poorly planned and executed voyage in a poorly prepared boat.

I'll await further details, but doubt if they will change my opinion.

Cheers,

Jim

Re: Three Canadian Sailors Rescued off Hawai

It sure said it was a catamaran of some type that the rigging had failed and the mast had fell when they called for help and then the ship came up on the wrong side and crushed there sailing catamaran as it was blown under the ship. Sounds like a night mare being in the water for an hour in the dark after seeing your boat being crushed by the ship. It would not be any different turn out if it had been a monohull, loosing a mast is never a good thing on any sailboat.

Three Canadian Sailors Rescued off Hawai on a Catamaran

After reading the story from another thread on CF these 3, dad and 2 sons were on a catamaran sailing from Mexico to Hawaii. The Sail world article here.....Sail-World.com : Nine-year-old: 'We're gonna sink. We're gonna die,' but family rescued

Makes me wonder what type of catamaran they were on???

Re: Three Canadian Sailors Rescued off Hawai on a Catamaran

There was an article recently about a Canadian family who were rescued off a monohull, on their way to Hawaii. Don't know if it's the same story though.

Re: Three Canadian Sailors Rescued off Hawai on a Catamaran

Here's something of interest in regards to the rescue. (Good Sam Laws)

Re: Three Canadian Sailors Rescued off Hawai on a Catamaran




Must have been a setup with a bogus artical about this rescue being a catamaran. I am starting to see why they might have lost there mast looking at the boats shining appearence

It was a good artical about the Good Sam law

Re: Three Canadian Sailors Rescued off Hawai on a Catamaran

Took 3 pages before anyone realised that the Tourist Catamaran that flipped in Australia wasn't actually a Catamaran - and that also had a picture posted early in the thread . (for me the main clue was in the number of bows. and hulls - but I guess that's Mono sailors simply being awkward for ya ).

Re: Three Canadian Sailors Rescued off Hawai on a Catamaran

Looks like a Yorktown 39' CC to me.In a separate incident,a catamaran capsized Feb. 20 near Cedar Keys Fla. in Gulf of Mexico ,with 2 men and a boy aboard who were rescued by coastguard.
