is a real problem, but they frequently don't sink the yacht unless they hit them just right.
After the global tsunami in the Indian Ocean
, there were huge logs
all over the place. I was amazed at people sailing on through the night with the big logs all around. On the morning radio
net, I remember a steel boat
telling how he sailed right over a log when he hit it. It destroyed his self-steering vane.
Hitting a log and sinking is extremely bad luck.
This is the worst log I have seen when sailing offshore
