Accident Reports

This thread is for accident reports so that we can have one place for a reference. I'll get us started:

2016 Platino Final Report: https://www.maritimenz.govt.nz/conte...eport-2016.pdf

2013 Uncontrollable Urge
https://www.sailingscuttlebutt.com/2...race-accident/

Re: Accident Reports

US Sailing maintains a list of safety reports/investigations they have been involved in here: https://www.ussailing.org/competitio...afety-reports/

(I was on several of these investigation teams)

I would guess there is a similar listing for MAIB reports (google would find it - they have excellent ones for example on Lion and Rafiki Cheeky incidents). . . .which are more 'official' (like USCG reports) than the US Sailing work. I have always thought highly of the MAIB work.

Re: Accident Reports

This would be the MAIB report listing: https://www.gov.uk/maib-reports?vess...al-craft-power

There are sort filters to narrow the criteria if you like. In the above I just ticked the 'recreational' criteria because most of their reports are on commercial incidents

This moderator agrees with you. The thread has just been stuck.

Re: Accident Reports

^^^^^
It is interesting that the court dinged the mate who was OOW on the overtaken vessel. He was negligent for sure, but so were the watchkeepers on the overtaking vessel. I do not understand why the penalties were so one-sided and the report did not seem to address that question.

Any of you pros out there have an opinion?

Yes, I have lots of opinions.

The watchkeeper on the ship that was run down was a goose - but failure to keep a good lookout astern is a common failing on ships large and small. One can have lots of fun with helmsmen( and watchkeepers back in the day job) by asking if there is any traffic around to which they reply 'No' . You then draw their attention to a ship about a mile or less on the quarter. 'S**t themselves' doesn't really do it justice.

I can't understand why the watch on the reefer wasn't severely dealt with.
'It wasn't moving very fast and I didn't see it' doesn't cut it with me.
