Ultimate Boat Failures: Crashes, Capsizes and Wrecks

From losing a rig to getting launched straight into the water, this is a brilliant video of what not to do on a boat!

Some of these really hurt, others are just sad. In this video there’s footage of a poor old hull washed ashore, leading you to wonder what its story is… Then there’s a yacht crashing into a flimsy pontoon: yacht 1; pontoon 0! There’s capsizes, sinkings, dismastings… and more. All the things you hope won’t happen to you!

Of course all of these are relatively rare… sailing and boating is actually a relatively safe pastime… although the sea can be a wild beast, which no man can control, most of those who venture upon it have a healthy respect for its power…. here’s wishing you a safe and incident-free year ahead!
