Sad end to an Irwin 52 in Panama City Bch bay

Just providing a link to a few pics just prior to and after the sinking last week of a beautiful Irwin 52. There was a squall that piped up over 40kts. I have zero idea how the boat went down and will refrain from conjecture given I was not there. Very unfortunate, the boat looks bristol for her age. Powerful reminder that it all can head south in an instant on the water.

Interesting, the pontoon boat seems to be doing fine.

Wondering why he didn't reef the Genoa?? A 130% plus genoa was a bit much sail to be carrying in that wind.
