Re: Snapped mast - ouch

Do you know what happened? The yacht looks small modern and racy with advertising down the boom, someone pushing it too much perhaps.

Re: Snapped mast - ouch

Someone stencilled "grand surprise" on the coach roof. Was this before or after the stick went "crack" ?

Haven't heard much detail. You can see by the background what weather they were sailing in. Spinnaker up going great next thing "bang" and it fell over the side. They think it was the back stay. Had to cut it loose before it put a hole where no hole is meant to be.

"Grand Surprise" is the boat type, built by French yard Archambault: BATEAUX ARCHAMBAULT

Ouch! Been there, done that. I'd bet on the aft stay parting first.

Another good reason to carry bolt cutters.
